New Sails

I am hoping Aussie owners of FP yachts can give me some direction on where best or who best to buy a new set of sails for my Belize 43

Re: New Sails

I've no direct experience with your FP, but I can recommend Steve Walker sails in Tassie. This is an independent loft, but with modern equipment and facilities. Steve is easy to talk with, listens to your side of the discussion (unlike a lot of "we know it all" lofts) and is well up on modern materials and techniques. He's not the cheapest date in town, but for me sails are not to be scrimped on... you get what you pay for.

We are very happy with the Hydranet mainsail he built for us.

Cheers,

Jim

Re: New Sails

Good to see you back in your "home".

I wondered when you would leave the cold and return when we went past Towlers last weekend.
