Caring for Your Sails

A well-cared suit of sails is essential for trouble-free cruising, as well as for the security of your vessel and crew. There's nothing worse than having a main sail fail at the start of a trip, or a genoa blow out in a sudden squall.

We provide a complete sail and canvas inspection and repair service as well as end-of-season washing to remove dirt, salt and mildew. Your Biminis, dodgers, sail covers and other canvas items will also benefit from a thorough cleaning. We offer a water repellent process that will extend the life of all your canvas items.

Do not store sails and canvas on board, as they tend to remain damp and attract mold. When we inspect, repair and wash your sails and canvas, we will store them through the winter for FREE in a dry, climate-controlled and rodent-free environment.
