I tried to answer your questionnaire, but the questions and answers are a little oversimplified. As an example.

I currently own or operate 10 boats, six in the US, and three in Jamaica. Of those three are sailboats ranging in size from 38' to 24', while seven are powerboats ranging from 65' to 13'.

I have had bad experiences with my sails, and have used all of the repair methods you asked about to fix them at one point in time or another. I have also bought multipurpose marine adhesives, and have spent more than $1,000 at a time on them. But this was an order measured in gallons. Since your survey doesn't specify size no good answer could be given.

Secondly a multipurpose adhesive is not all purpose. Is this a sail repair adhesive? Or a structural adhesive (like epoxy), more in the range of super glue, wood glue, ect... All of which could be called a multipurpose adhesive. What I would be willing to pay for one depends on what we are talking about, it's performance relative to the others, and the quantity of the purchase.
Hello! I am trying to get as many information as possible, but I know that my survey is a bit "elemental" if you have different boats and different ways to fix the sails. I was interested in getting some data about the "classical" ways to repair a sail, and how people usually tries to fix it (if they go to the sails factory, or if they try just to fix it with some adhesive like "liquid glue"/epoxy/tape).

Do you have a preferred method?

Thanks!

The quality of your questionnaire is equivalent to something my 11 year old grandson would produce before some adults would ask him questions similar to the ones I listed above.
Thanks for your reply about the questionnaire, very expressive

I was so impressed by the repair, that I bought a roll for my boat.
Thanks! How much is this tape aprox?

BTW: Sorry for my language, I am not a native speaker though I am trying to learn as much as possible to be understood. If there are syntax errors or any other kind of thing that should be expressed in another form, I'd be happy to know it and change it.

Thanks everybody!

Re: Survey for sailors...

Well, it also depends on the type of sail... For instance, if you have a mylar or loadpath sail, you won't likely be sewing it (maybe, but not likely)... tape is common as is adhesive.

Also a combination of structural tape (mylar or loadpath swatches) with adhesive is a COMMON way to repair loadpath sails.

Sewing dacron is common enough, is tape. I can honestly say I've done all of the above, sew, tape, and glue, and when it was hopeless to fix, I've replaced.

"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.

Re: Survey for sailors...

J'ajoute aux plaintes que le questionnaire n'était pas assez détaillé. On peut endommager une voile de plusieurs façons: un petit trou dans un spi se répare avec de la toile auto-collant Rip-Stop. Un petit accroc par une latte, on peut le coudre facilement. Nous avons eu toute une couture de notre GV déchirée à la hauteur de la deuxième latte dans un vent de 35 noeuds. Il fallait la recoudre sur environ 3m. Je suis bien acheteur d'un adhésif utile, mais les prix n'indiquent pas combien d'ahésif on achète, alors, on ne peut pas déterminer si c'est un bon affaire ou non. Bon vent en tout cas, cependant. Il faudrait peut-être poster aussi sur Hisse-et-oh, et stw.fr pour avoir d'avantage de réponses.
