Google: Kevane, Intensity and Neil Pryde for good aftermarket sails. Kevane makes a nice one with white and blue panels - the consensus is that Intensity makes the best Sunfishg aftermarket sail, but only in all-white and Red-White-Blue colors/

You almost spend $100 in materials to make your own sails. Its basically not worth it unless you enjoy it or do bulk production

Thanks Alan, I will look into the Kevane ones some more, only one I am not that familiar with.

The Kevane sails are very flat, no shape what so ever. I acquired one with a boat I purchased. It was yellow and white. I'm sure the quality was good, but not good for sailing being so flat. I have one new USA made sail, mackinaw color scheme (blue/white/green) with logo and window if you are interested. Race cut shape, clear vinyl window.

Thank you for the information, I like the color scheme, I can get that color directly though. Do you have any opinion of FX Sails?

I have owned the Jolly Roger that they make. It was well made. Some shape to it. I don't think they are made in USA though. I called to find out but nobody answered the phone.

The Kevane sail I saw was misshappen. If you want something unusual like a Jolly Roger that only they offer I would try them, otherwise I'd go with a different vendor. Why do you want made in the US? That is rather limiting these days.

Alright thank you for the info on their sails. And I like to support the American economy and believe the quality in most cases is better.
