Rayn,

SailCare

From Sailcare website, main on a Catalina 30 should be about $200 for the cleaning process. They charge $48/hr for repairs on top of that (better than the $80/hr for repairs I was quoted locally). I haven't used them yet, but just sent my 150 off for repair/cleaning, I'll post results when I get it back. Based on prior posts on this forum, they are pretty much universally well-liked.

Michael

IIRC, they charge by the sq. ft. easiest thing would be to call them or try their website.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

sailcare

I just got my main sail back from Sailcare. It is off of a 26.5 so will be somewhat smaller then yours. The cost was $155.00 and worth it. It looks great. They charge .95 per sq. foot. Mine was 165 sq. feet.

Thanks to all. I've seen a number of posts and reviews, and most everybody has good things to say about them. And they are less than an hour's drive from me!!

If I wasn't busy this weekend, I'd suggest an impromptu Pittsburgh-area sailnet meetup. Ford City is about 20 minutes from me--I was shocked when I was reading about this company to find out that they are located in Ford City, with the only real body of water nearby being the Allegheny River.

T37Chef, if you expect to catch some grub while you're here, feel free to drop me a line for some decent places in the area. Harmar (likely where you'll end up if you're taking the Allegheny Valley exit from the PA Turnpike) has mostly fast-food, but there happens to be a location of a downtown Pittsburgh mainstay there called Primanti's. While the atmosphere there isn't quite the same as the original, you can (and should) get one of the signature sandwiches, which include all of the normal sides ON the sandwich. There are also a number of places within a short drive of the Turnpike interchange that are quite good and quite affordable.

So I was thinking yesterday (scary I know), I have a truck, and since I am contemplating driving them up personally, perhaps some other Sailnetters in the Baltimore/Washington area would be interested in piggy backing on my delivery.

I would do it for no charge. I realize most of you don't know me at all and would wonder why the hell you would trust me...I offer my word.

I could do a Washington pick up & a Baltimore pick up ASAP.

I have inquired with them to see of we could possibly get an additional discount if we dropped off several sails? Waiting to hear back.

PM me if your interested.
