Sail Repair

Dou you know of a local sail repair loft? The old North sails location doesn't seen to want to work on windsurfer sails (and I'm not sure I'd want them working on mine anyway).

I have a mast sleeve that's opened up some stiching inside, near the head, causing the mast to go in a place it doesn't belong (make up your own joke).  They called from the loft today and said they "couldn't even get the mast they have half way in..."

Re: Sail Repair

flipper got some good work done by the aerotech guys down at Sandy Point.  $100 to replace a main panel, redo some stitching at the top and some other tlc.

You aren't trying to nurse the IMCO are you Chris?  

It's been said before:
This thing's _toast_.  
              - the Sail Nazi, Hatteras, 1997?

on the website is also a link for a lady who does work up in NJ.  

If you just want to seal up a non-structual seam or even one that take a bit of pressure, get a tube of Windshear and glue it.  Or use Windshear and tape over it with signal cloth (adhesive-backed dacron)

Re: Sail Repair

windshear   with wax paper on the inside and a heavy weight on top
or if there is a small 2 inch hole
cover it with a 6 inch patch use some cloth from a sail bag
and windshear it
