Arrrrr me hearties. Welcome aboard.
This episode is the documentation of a trip to the sail loft. Some months ago I contacted about three different lofts asking for quotes for the boat. I asked a high-end loft, North Sails, and a lower end, budget loft for quotes. As I expected, the high-end quote was out of my price-range. Mind you, you get what you pay for and what they offered was definitely in the excellent category. The low end just seemed too sketchy so I decided to go with North Sails. They’ve been around a long time, are a global company and have a good reputation.
So, in this vid, I take my sails into the NS loft for an assessment.
The consultant was reluctant to say any of my sails were junk but I decided to buy new genoa (130%), inner jib / stays’l, and main. It was an interesting visit to be sure.
As always fair winds, following seas, and God bless.
