Re: Mainsail from Hell OR am I an Old Fart?
zz4gta, good sailmakers (especially those from the bigger firms like Quantum) tend to move around a bit during their working life, so I do hope you won't require too much convincing.
Just because Quantum have a good rep in your area now, doesn't mean that the same guys won't be working someplace else in future. It always pays to get a current recommendation first before placing an order..
From RFC 1925: "(3) With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead."
