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

Not sure how relevant this is to you Jack, but when I got my new main done (an old one re-cut) the sailmaker refused to fit a headboard saying something like "we don't do that these days" or something along those lines.. and I guess having one made up would add quite a bit to the cost.

I was a tad disappointed because I wouldn't mind having the extra roach a headboard provides, but it wasn't a deal-breaker for me, so I currently don't have one.
