The new set of sails from Stuart at Dabbler Sails arrived today. They will be bent on SPARTINA briefly on Wednesday so that Angel from Little Bay Canvas can measure for a new set of sail covers. Then the new sails will come off, waiting until the new covers are completed before putting the new sails on for good.
These are custom sails in every sense of the word. Stuart still had the sail plans with notes from John Welsford and myself for the first set of sail he made several years ago.
The materials, this time using a heavier Dacron, and workmanship are first rate.
From the invoice:
DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I look forward to the first sail under the new wings.
