I recommend Quantum loft in Annapolis. Great service and decent price. It 
obviously pricier than online lofts but having a knowledgeable local shop is a 
great perk...

Subject: Stus-List Mainsail replacement considerations

Just received the results from the fall check-up and the local sail loft has 
diagnosed Windstar's ('85 33-2) mainsail as "beyond expired".   Cue the Monty 

The current main has two sets of reef points, (cringle at the leech and and 
ring-on-webbing-straps at the luff.)
No telltales other than streamers off the leech.
IIRC there may be a leech line.
4 partial battens battens.
There are two cringles at the clew, one above the other, and what I believe is 
called a "shelf" of lighter weight cloth along the foot.  Have never used this 
out of ignorance, but perhaps I should.
it has a rope foot, slides on the luff.

I will have Rolly Tasker in Thailand quote, as well as UK sails here in Toronto.

I value the 33-2's performance but most of my sailing is recreational sailing 
here on Lake Ontario.  Would like to distance race but not looking to be 
ultra-competitive at the top level.      Don't want to buy another Main for 
this boat in the next decade.

Any thoughts or recommendations on a replacement, or comments on sail lofts?   
Many thanks!

Windstar 33-2
