Greetings all:
Does anybody have experience / suggestions for a good sail washing outfit in Maine? Obviously looking for good service at a fair price. Any suggestions would be much appreciated - Thanks!

I use Acadia Sails in Southwest Harbor. They have a guy who does it for them.

SailCare

If you can't find a decent outfit locally, I'd highly recommend Sail Care (do a Google search). They do a great job cleaning and restoring sails. If you elect to use them, wait until they drop their prices for the winter -- you'll get a savings that'll offset the shipping costs.

Both Maine Sailing Parnters in Freeport and Hallett Canvas and Sails in Falmouth offer a sail washing service.

I've not had my sails washed by either of them -- yet -- but MSP has built a couple of sails for me... (BTW, Acadia Sails mentioned above is affiliated with MSP).

Edit: seeing as you're in Penobscott Bay, you should talk to Doug Pope at Pope Sails and Rigging in Rockland.

T37Chef will become famous soon enough
I second the Sailcare if something in Maine does work out

Sail Care for sail cleaning, sail repair, new sails, roller furlings and sailing equipment
