Re: north sail vs doyle
I'm going to have to give Doyle a thumbs down. My head sail when I had them make a new one, when I asked for a sunbrella cover the VP looked at me like I had two heads. The sunbrella was not hemmed, they used that thread sealer and that did not last before it started to have threads coming off. I brought it back and they did more of the same. Again it did not last.
The main sail they made...I brought my old sail to them and they measured it. I told them it was 6" short, the new sail ended up 12" short! 6" shorter than my original one. They told me they would add the 12" for me. I did not bring it back. They left staples in the sail that rusted and stained the sail. And the rope in the foot was too small and would not stay tacked, I had to return it to have that fixed. I would have had them fix the height too, but I did not know it was short at that point.
