- hello mate,
i've bought a new main this this year from gowen ocean sailmakers, in
i got 13 quotes i think, and went for gowens as they were price
competitive, and because they were just over the water from me, they
came over and physically measured the mast and boom for the sail. and
of course, if anything is not right, they're close by for fixing.
crusaders also do good sails and are very competitive. you'll pay
around 300 squid or thereabouts for a main, tho i don't know what a
genoa is worth.
i did all the quotes through the web and email, and sailmakers were
very happy to communicate electronically, and some would phone me too.
they were mostly pretty helpful, so its a pleasant enough experience.
hope that's helpful,

£335 for a cruising genoa.
£389 for a 'long-distance' genoa.
£453 for a cruiser/racer genoa.
£621 for a racing genoa.
Prices accurate as at yesterday.
(I have an almost new (one-season) Crusader genoa and asked 'em for
prices, as I'm thinking of selling it ...)
