Thumbs up Sail Reconditioning

Just wanted to inform anyone who is not aware of the fabulous service provided by Sail Care, of their present annual fall discount. No, I am not an employee nor have any interest in their business. Just a happy customer.

I sent my old sails (1 jib, 1 main) to them last year to be cleaned and repaired. What was returned to me was far beyond my expectations. I essentially have 2 new sails for less than the cost of one jib.

Here's a message I received from them...

Just a reminder: don't miss SailCare's
ANNUAL FALL 15% SAIL CLEANING DISCOUNT SPECIAL!!

If you haven't sent your sails to SailCare already, do it soon and save! We're pleased to once again offer our Annual Fall 15% Discount Cleaning Special, which started October 1st and runs till the end of the year, December 31st.

This is the only cleaning special we will run all year - don't miss it!! So get those dirty sails off the boat, box them up and get 'em to us in time to take advantage of the FALL 15% SPECIAL.

Also, visit our website (http://www.sailcare.com) frequently as we continue to add new products and items throughout the year.

We Put The Wind Back In Your Sails!

Dittos...They are awesome. Sails come back repaired, renewed and almost like new. Well worth the money!

I'd third Sailcare as being a worthy investment, especially if your sails are a bit older and have need of some good TLC.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I agree they come back very clean (though I had to send mine back once as they hadn't done it right/completely, but they paid for return mail), but unless you specifically ask them to recut the sail, the re-conditioning process won't help a "blown out" or too full older sail. Although a nice white sail is pleasing to the eye, it doesn't replace the need to buy a new sail when its time is up to get good sail shape.
Frank.
