SloopJonB,
No, Carol Hasse's shop is called Port Townsend Sails at Port Townsend Sails - new sails and repair for all sailboats

And you're right, you can do the Whidbey ferry thing. I happen to love crossing the Straits of Georgia and Straits of Juan de Fuca, and go out of my way to do so whenever I can!

Use Leitch & McBride - they are across from the Air Scare testing station at the bottom of Pemberton in North Van. I've used them and they are cheap & fast - been around for years too. I found dealing with them to be much the same as dealing with Gary Storch but less eccentric.

Is her place called The Artful Dodger? I saw some of their work at P.T. boat festival and it was outstanding and a VERY catchy & memorable name.

Nope - drive town Whidbey island to the Keystone ferry and straight across. You can leave your car and do a walk on if you're staying right in P.T.

KBuckley I have had work done by both North Sails and Evolution and been happy with both. Evolution did a fast & good repair on my main last summer and are currently making a new main & foresail for me (thru their loft in Toronto).

I know, I know, you'd have to ferry to Victoria, and then ferry to Port Townsend, but I'm just saying--her loft is the Taj Mahal for me.

Re: Reputable sail loft Vancouver?

We've lost a lot of sailmakers in Vancouver of late.. Not sure that anyone besides Leitch and McBride in North Van, or North sails in Richmond is doing on-site repairs. Obviously for you L&M makes more sense.

You might call Evolution sails on Powell st, they may do some of that work but I don't know anything about them.

Storch is still working but over near Nanaimo on Vancouver Island - not exactly convenient.
