First, sorry for responding to an old thread. Second, I know next to nothing about sailboats apart from the years of research I've been doing.
...but bear in mind that a new main and genoa for a boat like this will cost at least 10k."
When I read the above quote
I almost gave up on my dream boat.
So, feeling a bit defeated
, I decided to do a quick search for sail prices for the Standfast 36 and my dream boat. What I found put the wind back in my sails, so to speak.
For the main, head and spinnaker, all brand new, was about $6k US. Initially, I was thinking $10k for each sail.
My point, and no offense to anyone, is don't believe everything you read online even if it is coming from a "Senior Member", again no offense intended. There is so much contradicting information in forums that one must just take it all with a grain of salt, glean any wisdom and double/triple check what is questionable to ones logic.
Thank you, to all that post, for the excellent stories and information.
