So a Sail Rite sewing machine will not sew all sails? I was thinking of buying one to do sail repair, but curious if it would sew my main sail. I have done repairs to my main by hand and have broken many sail needles. The sail is somthing like 1/2 inch in areas where it is sewen in high stress areas. What type machine do they use to make these?
