Sail Cleaning

I sent one of my sails a true 150 Genoa hood sail to sail care for some repairs and cleaning. The foot on this sail is 24.2 feet and the LP is 27 feet. So it's a really big sail. He wants to replace the tape on the bottom of that sail. The price $650 for repairs cleaning and $400 for the tape. All the while he was giving me the price he kept saying "what a nice sail". What do you think go for the tape replacement ?

Sail care

The professional at sail care have years of experience and stake their reputation on their craft. I would trust their opinions and replace the tape. When you get your sails back and they look and perform as well as new ones you will appreciate the fact that it will be a long time and many seasons till you have to repeat this process or opt for new sails. They did a great job on mine and a friends sails. I too didn't like the price but the outcome made it worth it..

Fair Winds,

Bill

Just like anything else, it doesn’t hurt to get a "second opinion." Call a top tier competitor with the specs of the sail and get another price. I use Hathaway, Reiser and Raymond in Stamford, CT.
