Sailmakers and canvas repair
« on: November 01, 2016, 08:21:06 am »
It's the end of the season. My main sail which is original to my boat Sanctuary P303 is looking like it is in need of a recut, however Owing to it's age I'm also considering replacing it.  Our dodger is also in need of repair work - seams and zipper.   Any recommendations on sailmakers and canvas shops for repair work?  We are in middle river.

I've used North Sails in Eastport.  They're good but expensive.

There's a little canvas shop in Pasadena called Atlantic Canvas that has been doing my
sunbrella work recently.  Owner's name is Ashby.  Good work at a fair price.

Thanks Ed.

I got estimates from several sailmakers and in the end chose north.  I'm sure they are all good quality but I liked having a rep nearby.  Next on my wish list is a gennaker.   Maybe later this summer.  May try to find a used one this time around.
