New Sails, opinions
I am in the market for a new cruising mainsail for my Aloha 27. The quotes I have rec'd vary wildy for what appears to be similar products.
Sail makers have recommended Challenge sailcloth 6.53 ounce to another Dacron product at 7.5 ounces (Victory) and North 4800 7 ounce.
I recently rec'd a quote from Sailseast but nobody at our club has dealt with them. The local lofts are North, Doyle, Victory and Lee but Sailseast is half the price.........
This leads to 2 questions. First is 6.53 ounce Challenge sailcloth heavy enough for coastal cruising a 27 footer? and second what sort of quality can I expect from Sailseast?
Any help is appreciated
