Re: Cleaning Sail
Email is off already. I think the idea of keeping them clean is to forstall the resizing problem (which I realize you know resizing ain't gonna happen). The less dirt in the fibers, the slower the breakdown.
Our vendor would apply Sailkote as a separate step. That has benefits, but fixing a blown out sail isn't one of them. I've yet to have them do it, but know some racers that love the stuff.
We sent our bimini and dodger to them as well this year and they really came back great. The heat and trapped moisture do a number on them and mildew in the seems and stiching are hard to battle. That was all gone.
