Lee sails any recent experience?
I am in the market for a new main sail for my contessa 26 and have received a quote from Lee sails.
1000$ no full battens no loose foot and 2 reef points. My local loft has a great rep and I am sure that I would be happy with their results but the price difference is pushing 7-800$.
So has anyone ordered/received a main sail from Lee sails recently? If so what are your thoughts?
I recall looking closely at the sail Lee sails had on display at the January Toronto boat show last winter and my impression was that it was not a second rate sail. Weight of cloth was good, stitching finishing all good. I understand in the past sails coming out of China, at times(Lee sails included) had a reputation for being second rate in quality and finish is this still the case?
Any thoughts are welcome.
