Sail Repair & Maintenance

We now offer sail repair out of our North Vancouver location including UV replacement on furling sails. Other common repair jobs include re-webbing slides, re-stitching, patching tears and holes and strengthening clew and tack hardware.

Why Sail Repair?

  • UV damage destroys sails quickly! Replace your UV cover every 4 years
  • Regular maintenance of your sails can add years to their life
  • Well maintained sails add to your sailboat’s performance
  • Repairing it now or replace it later—avoiding repairs can be costly

What to consider when repairing or maintaining your sails:

  • Is the UV cover over 4 years old, ripped or torn?
  • Has your stitching been rotted out by UV?
  • Are your slides or hanks worn?
  • Are there chaffing points or holes in your sail?
  • Is your sail worth repairing?

We use top-quality sail cloth in a variety of weights and types including:

  • Dacron and UV Dacron
  • Carbon Fibre and/or Kevlar Laminated racing cloth
  • Ripstop Nylon for spinnakers & other lightweight sails
