Re: Mainsail from Hell OR am I an Old Fart?

What specifically did you order

Sailcloth, weight reefs, deminsions for what kind of boat features, batten pockets. Do you have other pictures.

Right off the get go cruising sails that I jhave priced are usually triple stitched or they have decreased the throw of the zigzag. The Clews are reenforced big time.

Hard to tell because of so many variables though. What did you pay.

As an example We have a two year old Quantum Mainsail

8 oz high modulus performance sailcloth- 290 sq ft
4 full battens with closed batten sleeves
triple stitched, cross cut, 2 reefs with reef bands
metal reenforced head board with web
renforced tack and clews
and other features.

This was $2800
