Sail repair in Corpus Christi?
 
At the risk of jinxing my deal *fingers crossed*, I have found a sailboat that is exactly what I wanted. Should be inking the deal next weekend. But there are some pretty rough spots on the mainsail. Mostly at the clew where it was exposed to the sun and the stitching gave up the ghost.

Is there anyone in corpus christi who would be able to inspect and repair it, or am I destined for a trip to houston or austin?

Sail repair
 
There was a husband and wife around Ingelside or Portland but I think they have pulled up stakes and went cruising on their boat. His name was Daryl and they had a shop at their house. His number was 361/230-0822. He was trying to find someone to buy him out before they left. They did a good job of re-stiching a jib for me.

Daryl pulled up stakes is correct, they moved aboard their boat at Bahia Marina in Ingleside on the Bay, but, they haven't gone off sailing yet. He still has the same cell number, and I talked to him the other day - he's not still in the business.
Try calling Brian, he's a rigger and works for Neil Pryde Sails, he should know who to call. Try him at 361-563-8442
