I called North Sails, Doyle, and SailCare today. North Sails quoted me $3.40/lb for wash and inspection, repairs cost extra at $40/hr. Doyle was $2.65/lb for wash, inspection, and minor repair. SailCare just gave me a raw estimate for the job that seems to come out to around $4/lb. They said they dry-clean and most other companies essentially just hose the sails down with water. They were the last I called, so I didn't ask the other companies if they dry clean. Do you think dry cleaning is worth it? Also I need to factor in the shipping charges if I go with SailCare.
