New Sails

seems no one has any advice.... or maybe they are still waiting for the ordered sails to come in ???

I have priced them and than I went with Sailnets own Airforce sails and found them very competitive indeed. Plus I was talking to knowledgeable people who listened to all my questions and had a few suggestions I gladly followed. I am very happy with the Sails I bought from Airforce .

New Sails

Looking to buy new sails. Have been looking at Catalina Direct (www.catalinadirect.com) I have a Catalina 30 1984. The things I am seeing different on the Main are the loose footed and the cloth "shackles" that are reversed to force the sail to flake. I am being told by one sailmaker that that will cause the sail to be harder to raise and lower. I am also being told by one person that the loose footed will make it harder to keep the sail on the boom when lowered. Anyone have any experience with these?? Also, if anyone knows of other places to look for sails, am still open to that, but I do want to order within the next week.

Thanks, Jim Atkinson
