hi folks. i have a jib. it was free and it is in new condition. a bit dirty but the sailcloth is still paper crisp. but, it's hank on. i want rollerfurling. i live in the baltimore annapolis area. i am looking for a reasonably priced loft to convert the sail for roller furling. i have talked to bacon's about it, before, and they really just want to sell you a new sail.

as hoping someone might know of a reasonable loft around here that i could contact. thanks.

Check out postings at marinas. We found a woman who used to work at a sail loft, she now does sail repair part time out of her house.
my marina doesn't have any postings like that. i could make the rounds to the other local marinas. where would you usually look for postings like that? that's exactly the kind of person that would be perfect for this.

Harken also sells snap shackles that mount directly to the furler and don't require sail modifications. Soft shackles can also be used.
i ill have to look into that.

adding the uv cover does seem to be the expensive part of the conversion. perhaps, it wouldn't be a bad idea just to remove the sail when not sailing. at least for now. it only takes a few minutes to hank one on. folding it to stow it takes longer than hanking it on.
