where to get a ripped spinnaker repaired? Long Island NY

Hey all,

Anyone know of a good place to get a spinnaker repaired? It has several rips, each about 1 to 4 feet long. I'm located on Long Island, looking for an outfit that does good work and is reasonably cost-effective.

(More details: Asymetrical, for 50 foot sailboat. It also has broad areas where the blue has rubbed off on the white. I guess the color ran a bit.)

Regards,
Brad

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Good point. It's a Doyle sail. Are they pretthy good?

(Maybe they can help me track down the previous owner. I bought the boat from a bank and would love to hear the stories of where she's been.)

Hmm, how many rips can they fix in a hour. Well, it's well worth it to get the spi working.

We're quite a distance from a loft here BUT I've had several brag on the service they received from Somerset Sails. They run classified ads in several sailing magazines.

Call Mark Washeim at Doyle in Huntington at (631) 673-5055. Mark and his team are terrific. They're on New York Ave in Huntington (Rt 110). I belive their fall special goes through Dec 1st and is 10% off.

Where on LI?

Jack Wedekin is in Port Jeff. He is a nice guy and does good work. You know of the lofts in Huntington. There is a good UK Halsey loft on City Island.

Good luck,
Barry

Thanks everyone for the help. I just talked with Mark Washeim. My spinnaker has 5 tears in it. They are from 1 to 4 feet long. He said to allow 20 to 25 minutes for each tear, at $86/hour. I can get the 10% off.

Also, I don't have to drop off the spinnaker this week (but I can't wait until the busy season to do it). So next time I have to go to Huntington anyway, I'll drop it off.

By the way, the spinnaker also has areas where the blue has bled onto the white. Mark said there's nothing he can do about that, that maybe over time it will get better.

I can't wait to see that baby flying!! Even if it's going to be next year.

Anyone have experience with the Quantum loft in Port Washington? I recently purchased a boat that came with a number of Quantum sails, and I would like to get them inspected, etc. I believe this loft is under relatively new ownership, so recent experience is probably most relevant.

I also have a spinnaker (Hood) where the blue has run onto the white. I think it's shot, though, as it appears it was under the forepeak for a very long time . . .
