Price-wise, it costs $1.85/sqf ....
Let's see... I just got a quote on a new mainsail for my Cal 2-27, which was about one kilo-buck (nuthin' fancy, just a basic Dacron coastal cruising main, loose-footed, two reef points). The main is about 160 square feet. So we're talking about $300 for a treatment that will make the sail look nice, and give it a little better shape for a year or so, verses $1000 for a brand, spanking, new sail that will probably last at least 10, maybe 20, times as long.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
