Can't, they closed up shop. But I would stay away from Doyle in Annapolis.

One other thing is where the sail is made. A friend of mine ordered a sail from a local loft and it was made in China. It was made wrong and the loft had to make a new one at their expence. He was never told that the sail would be made over seas..

Most larger sails are not made in-house, has been my experience, though UV covers and such are put on at the local level.

My local loft that made my new headsail designs, cuts, and assembles ALL sails in-house. How do I know? I watched the whole time. They were very thorough in measuring. The owner of the loft even came out and raced one day with me to see how the sail was performing. After the race he recommened a couple of adjustments and then took the sail back and made the changes at no cost to me.

In my opinion your thinking is correct, but you should try having this same conversation with the sailmaker. Give them as much info as you can and ask for their input as much as possible. They are the professionals, and should be able to narrow your options down for you.

Also, if you're thinking of certain upgrades, like going to a mast track with battcars....now would be the time to do it..

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.
