Replace Mainsail Emblem

The big 'O' on Karma's main sail (she's a 1981 O'Day 34) has long since gone and is now a tacky dirty spot.

How (or can) do I get rid of the tacky-dirty spot without compromising the sailcloth?

Where can I go to get a new 'O'?

Try calling sailcare and describing your problem. I've been very happy with their restorations of quite a few of my sails over the years.

I'd second Cam's suggestion of contacting Sailcare.

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.

"Goo-Gone"

is the sailmaker's STANDARD for insignia cloth adhesive removal from sails.
Usually available at most common hardware stores. Sold in 1 pint plastic bottles.

You could buy that spinnaker cloth that has glue on one side, and comes in many colours and remake the O again.

I believe the kite stores sell the spi cloth with adhesive
