" Super Sailmakers " Good or Bad ?

I am in need of a new Genoa and I was checking on different sailmakers in the US and overseas.
Has anyone heard of "Super Sailmakers" in Florida? I could not find anything positive or negative about this company.
Any input?

They are great! I just got a new genoa delivered to me in Antigua during the holidays in less than 3 weeks. Then sailed down to Grenada. Sail has great shape. Talk to Peter Grimm and let them know Tom Arnold and John Kretchmer referred you.

Re: " Super Sailmakers " Good or Bad ?

I had a furling jib made in 2007 by "Super Sailmakers" in Ft. Lauderdale. They did a great job of: first asking the right questions to cut a sail that would best suit my needs, and second, building it well. 16,000 sea miles later I'm in New Zealand and have never had a single problem with it yet.

You can certainly pay more for a brand name that advertises in the sailing magazines, but let me reassure you that in spending less, you're not going to get less from these guys.
