Well, ya’ know, when my sails need some attention, which they always seem to do these days, I get out the ditty-bag, pour me a tall glass of grog, light the pipe and spend a lovely afternoon stitchin’ ‘er up. Now, I ain’t sayin’ that’s what ye’ should do, yea, go ahead and buy yerself a new main, BUT take back the old one and fix it yerself! You’ll learn a bit about what to do the next time yer of on the briny, a billion miles from a sailmaker when a sail lets go and you’ll have a spare to boot! DO IT!
