Sail Repairs and Recuts. Canvas and Cordage

Damaged or blown out sails needn’t always be replaced with new sails straight away. You may find it’s more cost-effective to have them professionally repaired or re-shaped, to extend their working life. A good sail, professionally re-shaped, can often provide very similar performance and reliability to a new sail.

Our experienced sailmakers can advise you on the condition of your current sails, and how to get the most out of them. You’ll get straightforward, honest advice to help you decide what’s best for you.

All repair work is carried out with the same attention to detail and quality workmanship that we put into our new sails, so you can have total confidence in any sail repairs we carry out.

We build high quality sail covers (standard and lazy bag types) using Sunbrella and Weathermax marine cover material.

All covers are stitched with ‘Solarfix’ UV proof thread for ultimate reliability and no stitching breakdown due to the sun.

We can also repair all your existing canvas work to restore it to its former glory or help prolong its life. We also supply cleaning agents or re water proofing agents for canvas.
