luffs, Battens and Leech ?

I just want to know what it would cost to replace the main sail on a 35 Pearson. Looking on the internet is not for the ignorant. Thanks

At least they point you in the right direction, they just tell me were to go.

The Quantum guy on HHI gave me a quote for nearly twice that for a main on my little C30. Has anyone purchased FX Sails? Are they made from old bedsheets?

Quantum is Quantum....that's not surprizing, expensive but the best..... probably the best now, since NS doesn't give a damn about customer care support and attention...and are too important for normal people...with all the business from the AC's they treated too many customers bad....they lost...now that the AC's over, they comeback and tap you on the shoulder...back off leeches.....back offf

My next "clothes" will be Quantum...thats a given!!
