I'm not meaning to be a poser here or showing off/flash tosser, I'm hoping to merely show that even a 20 year old (almost ) scratched up outdated boat, given love time effort and a few quid can not just look great but is structurally solid.
Let us know how you find the quality after a few times on the water. Thats not a bad price. Some others like rooster and l think the intensity one work out cheaper but one else seems to offer the colour option plus numbers and fitting. If the black Medic sail sells you may have just started a new trend.
I called a few lofts, one quoted outrageous numbers another got funny and pompous about a one design class infringement, another was way (too) cheaper but gave me a six week wait ( guess they were going to order one from Far East supplier and charge me a ransome )...
Tom gave me a reasonable quote and I knew it was gonna be made here & properly.
These e- bay ones are 60% less than mines though !
Of course I'll let you all know how it sails, when I eventually get back to the club !
I love that last pic above, ^^ they should've done the spars and foils aswell though.
I heard today that Hyde cut their sails ten at a time.
Stack up ten bits of cloth and laser cut 'em !
Might explain the slight variations we experience if it's true and it relies on the person piling up the stack.
Uk Laser sailor - I'd rather retain the individualism than be a trendsetter mate ! Tbh I'd be a bit gutted if black sails started appearing all over the place. I'm gonna tell everyone there's nothing but issues Lolz.
No mate but he does make a quality sail and at a good price and he is a nice guy (he hangs round here too on occasion). He did me a sail about 18 months ago now, it looks very nice and does perform well. Might be worth bearing in mind should you want another coloured sail ;-).
