Traditional sailmaking is a fast growing part of our business. We have built or repaired sails for a number a traditinal boats ranging from 25' daysailors to 300' square riggers. We have experience with a wide range of materials including Oceanus, Egyptian cream dacron, and tanbark, and are proficient in all types of traditional handwork. We build sails to a wide range of traditional finishes. Our most traditional work has been with squaresails for 17th century museum reproduction squareships. These sails have hand roped edges, spliced corners, and all hand sewn grommets. We have also built sails with traditional ropework and modern pressed rings and grommets. Our recent projects include a Skipjack mainsail and a main topmast staysail for the USCGC Eagle.
