I got a call from Doyle today. They want $700 to fix my asym. Actually that includes fixing the dowsing sock too, since that needs a repair where the plastic mouth meets the fabric
sock. (The thing looks just like a manta
is in great condition except for the multiple tears that they are fixing.
The previous owner left the spinnaker
in the bag wet for quire some time, so it has stains all over it where the red and blue leaked onto the white.
So after spending $700 I'll have a stained, otherwise excellent spinnaker, with a functional sock.
Question: Should I go for the $700 or am I putting good money
after bad? I see used spinnakers on ebay for not that much more. It sure would be good to not have a stained one. The spi is really out there when you're flying it. I'm not sure I want to look like dirty laundry
coming in from a distance.
What do you think?
