If this was agreed on, in writting, then maybe you have some legal recourse. That's why it's good to pay 1/2 up front and 1/2 upon delivery. If the sailmaker honestly didn't build what you asked, then you should have a way to get your money back.

You've convinced me not to use sumerset sails, but then again, it would take quite some convincing to get me to use anyone else besides Quantum.
