Sail Evaluations
Regular sail maintenance and evaluations will help guarantee that you get the most out of your sails. Many expensive sail repairs can be avoided if basic maintenance is preformed. Sail evaluations are designed to give you a sense of where your sails are in terms of their condition and longevity. This is a good offseason project. Having you sails evaluated in the off season will ensure that they are ready to sail by the time you launch your boat.

  • Every aspect of the sail will be assessed, and documented for future reference. The customer will take home a hand written report about their sails.
  • During the time spent in the evaluation, basic maintenance will be preformed until the price for the service is reached. This may be fixing a few broken stitches, replacing some webbing, or patching a small hole.
  • Any maintenance requiring significant materials and time will be billed at the shop rate- only after the customer approves the work to be done.
  • The base price for this service is $49/sail above 100sqft. Sails with an area under 100sqft will be evaluated appropriately.

Custom Hand Spliced Dock Lines
