After serving your boat for another season out on the water, your sails look forward to the fall and winter to get out of the sun, have salt removed, and have minor blemishes and stains repaired and removed. Thread and stitching can also deteriorate, especially in areas of chafe. Part of our standard service is to check all points of attachment and check for broken stitching and other normal wear and tear.

Your sails are thoroughly examined by our experienced service team. We look for, among other things, broken stitches, batten pocket wear, UV damage, sunshield condition and the overall condition of the cloth. Minor repairs are performed and all new tell tales are attached. If more than the standard repair is needed, then we will contact you to explain the repair in detail and get your authorization.

An estimate will be given for the recommended service needed and/or a quote for a recut or new sail as well. Sails are then washed, rinsed and hung to dry and then properly bricked and stored in our upstairs loft area.

Receipt of an invoice will notify you that your sails are ready for a new season and you may either pick up then,or wait until the spring.

We are proud to give you the best service available all year 'round.
