It's not quite as simple as ripping off the old luff hem and sewing on a new luff tape. Often the sail needs to be shortened somewhat because of the insertion of the furling drum at the bottom and the swivel at the top.
That said, for a 26 ft boat (about a 30 ft luff) I charge $175 for the luff tape and $350 for the Sunbrella UV stripes down leech and foot.

Just because you're paranoid ...doesn't mean they're not after you!
