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

C ... Ouch .... I missed the final chapter of that tale. I have to say that we have been seemingly very lucky with sailmakers. We've used McDiarmid for Raven's new main and they also made the main previous owner put on Kukka.

Largely because of convenience and because he sponsors the local club , we used Ben Gemmell for last bit of work and again no complaints. Ben is a good bloke, an energetic worker and knows his stuff.

Quite frankly if I want sail work done I want the sailmaker to come to the boat if possible.

Oh yes ... I'm afraid I'm also of the opinion that .... one should never accept the highest or lowest quote and if it sounds to good to be true then it probably is.
