Found a good deal on mains

Thread starter #1
Hola --
A Catalina dealer in St. Petersburg, FL has new factory mains for sale cheap. He sold a half-dozen C-14s to a sailing club that upgraded to racing sails. The jibs are apparently sold, but he had 3 mains left for $300, the factory is charging $560.

They're a nice company to deal with, the owner races Flying Scots and patiently answered my goober questions and showed me around.

Masthead enterprises, 1-800-783-6953,

I've been too busy dealing with our unusually cold weather to try mine out yet, but the physical appearance, stiffness, etc. sure is striking compared to my 23 year old originals. Can't wait to see how they perform, it's my first ever set of new sails.

Probably still time to drop hints about a new sail for Christmas! :D
