My suggestion is buy local, and deal with a sail maker who comes out and measures the boat. If they give you a quote without measuring, make very sure they plan to come measure before processing the order. I got four quotes, and only one guy came up to measure before quoting. We discovered my rig is not exactly standard.

One guy told a friend of mine that for the head sail on his Tanzer 22, "I don't measure for that little money." Who would do business with a guy that says that?
