Unfortunately, it is not quite that easy. Even though built by the same manufacturer, there may be small differences in things like the location of the gooseneck, which will affect the luff length for the mainsail
. Occasionally there is a glitch of one kind or another, and a sail doesn't fit properly. This is more common when the sail loft has not personally measured the boat. Some people order from mail order lofts and do okay, sometimes the sails
go for long airplane rides at one's own expense.
Therefore, our practice has been to deal with someone local, because if something needs adjusting, it's much easier. And, if you are pleased with the workmanship, and service
, quite a pleasant business relationship can take place.
