Looking for a good Sail Loft in MA/RI
I'm looking for recommendations on a good sail loft in the Massachusetts/Rhode Island area, preferably in the Buzzards Bay area. I need to have my genoa and mainsail modified a bit.

Also looking for canvaswork recommendations, as I need to get the dodger and bimini on my boat modified.

Harding Sails Harding Sails in Marion did some main and genoa repair for me, seemed to do very good work at a reasonable price, and very nice people. Definitely recommend, and right around the corner for you.

Thanks SF... and yes, they're pretty local to the boat. :) I'll give them a call in the morning. :)

SD - if you don't mind a bit of a drive, I've been very happy with Steve O'Connel of Halsey Lidgard in Essex Ct (close to RI) for sails and had a brilliant dodger and wheelcover done by Fairclough in New Haven Ct (not so close to RI.)

SD -

I just had the windows in my dodger replaced with Stratoglass - I had Allerton Harbor Canvas do the work, I was quite happy with the job they did. They are in Weymouth, Jay Hanks at 781-337-1900. Open on Saturdays!

SD, I too have used Harding for a new main and genoa. I was very happy and they are good people. I also used them to replace plastic in my dodger. The canvassmith on Popes Island made up custom cockpit cushions that IO am happy with, although a littel slow on the delivery. Bump

Thanks Bump... Got a call in to Harding sails ATM... :)
