I just purchased a new main and staysail from Rolly Tasker. They are a long standing loft in Australia
(50 yrs?) and have now setup shop in Thailand
my main is 34x15, full batten, 3 reefs
my quotes were:
sails - 3400
Sobsted - 2600
FX - 1800
Rolly Tasker - 1600
They use first grade challenger HM cloth. Or any cloth you specify.
They have a dealer in Florida
Back in the day sail making was an art. The sail makers had to be able to cut the curves that make the draft
in the sail just so...all by hand and a good eye. Today they are designed by software
and plotted and cut by computer. So as long as you get good cloth and hardware
, you will get a good sail.
The big secret to getting a good sail is accurate measurements!
ps, just did an initial trial sail with a friend who purchased some Quantum sails. These were made in S. Africa
. Very nice job!
