Re: Rolly Sasker Sails... Opinions

I had a couple of Tasker sails made a couple of years ago for my Tayana 37 including a staysail and a main. Had them put in an over the top leech line so that the leech could be tensioned from the mast rather than hanging over the side of the boat trying to reach the clew of the main. They did a good job of following my instructions and the quality was good. I contracted with the fellow out of Florida who use to run the place in Thailand. Can't remember his name right now, but Mainesail spoke very positive of him and that was good enough for me.

Re: Rolly Sasker Sails... Opinions

No matter what or whom you buy from, DEMAND that the cloth used is of U.S. manufacture,
and specify the best strongest UV resistant thread.
Why? Because the cloth made in the United States has a far tighter weave, and import thread rots.
Hope this helps.

Re: Rolly Sasker Sails... Opinions

I've bought two sails from National (RTasker) in Fl. The first was a genoa and I was so impressed I bought a new staysail. Both are RF and the offshore models. Dirk (?) at National was extremely helpful and the measuring was actually quite easy.
