Re: Frequently Asked Canvas Questions

Well, thank you so much for your flattering comments!

It's difficult to just generally say which features are important for all cruising dodgers as I feel that the ocean-going passage-maker...

Re: Frequently Asked Canvas Questions

I neither work on sails nor sell them, these are just observations from someone who used to work in a sail loft (doing canvas work).

Re: Frequently Asked Canvas Questions

Re: Frequently Asked Canvas Questions

This question is not much of a canvas question but since I used to work in a sail loft I'll take a stab at it.
