Sail Re-Resining ?

My sails are well overdue for cleaning and some minor repairs, which I will have done after haulout. I'm curious about this company: Sail Care, specifically about the re-resining process they offer.

Does anyone have any experience with them and/or advice about them?

Thanks much,
- D

Dennis,

Sail Care folks processed several sails for me about 20 years ago. Company ownership has since passed to employees who did the work for me back then. The sails were terribly dirty/stained and they came back like new. Minor stitchining was also performed. The resination process returned considerable body to the sails and I was satisfied with the end result.

Since then I've had new sails cut, but most of the resinated sails remain usable (unfortunately, I haven't been sailing for too many years). Of course, the condition of your sails is integral to the degree of success with this process. They can't turn rags into new sails.

Feel your way with them on the phone. Send one sail and see how it goes, which worked for me.

Roger

I've used Sailcare several times, and each experiance has been good. They will clean, repair,and treat your sails. They do a good job. They will tell you if your sails are too far gone for the treatment to be of advantage. They are usually backed up and it takes a while to get your sails back, and shipping them off is a pain, but I will continue to use them.
