Re: Rolly Tasker/ National Sail Supply?

If one does a search, with the topic being along the lines of folks buying sails. Many/most of the key questions & features can be dug up. It's just that it takes a while in order to assemble them all. As different lofts have differing levels of, & styles of fitting out. And, of course, the "Devil" (quality of the resulting sails), is in the details.
Ergo my (abridged) checklist, above.
As, believe me, a quality loft will/can give you a list of choices & decisions to make about your next main or jib, which is literally, 2+ pages long (single spaced). And it PAYS to work with such people.

Re: Rolly Tasker/ National Sail Supply?

Coincidentally, I picked up my new set of sails from National Sail Supply yesterday. I hoisted the genny last night and everything is great. I thought I'd post photos of the asym spinnaker and the genny. It's going to take me a while to sort out the battens and batcars for the main.

I was very happy with the help that I received from Dirk at National Sail Supply. He was very helpful when I was deciding upon my choice of sails and he answered my questions promptly. The sails arrived on schedule...and of course, their prices are very hard to beat.

I am no expert on sails so can only say that the quality of construction seems great.
