DO NOT do it. Need photo
evidence? Their work is terrible. I paid them cash three months in advance on the recommendation of a friend. NOTHING happened as promised, they failed to follow through on their promises at every step. They had a newbie build the sails the night before my deadline and dumped it on my deck
the next day (day before departure) with zero support. I'll happily post pics of the seams that look like they were stitched by a drunken five year old. Cost me 2k to get Schattaeur Bros to sorta "fix" a main they built for me. These guys are shysters. Even the friend who recommended them, who is an old friend of Joe's, said he may be able to make a sail but is a horrible business man. I second that, I don't appreciate being lied to and having my support of the little guy taken advantage of. Call Schattauer Bros. and ask them about the sails that BS (appropriate acronym) built for me. They are awesome, first choice for me is Schattauer, then Hasse, then Hood
, then North, Quantum, or Sobstad. Price
is reflected in quality.
