I put my knee through my 6.5 (doh!). I live in central VA and was wondering if there was a good place around to get it repaired. I heard there was a north sails place around hampton, but they quoted me $100+. Is there anywhere else, or is that what I'm going to end up paying anyway.

Thanks,

Cyrus

avon sail house(NC) does great work and probably priced a little less...you'd have to ship it or go down for a visit, they do overnight repairs for clean sails and have been more than fair for my repairs...have been crunched hard many times in outer banks shore break.

Check out this website http://www.sailworks.com/web/pages/repairs.cfm. It has prices for different sail repairs. Good luck.

I agree about the work and the price, but normally they spend the summer at the Gorge and the place turns into an Art Gallery. Call them at: (252) 995-7954

I actually found this North Sails loft in Newport News that sells sails for sail boats. They did it for $40 in an afternoon, looks great (haven' t sailed it yet). Got them from Beach Sports in Hampton and would strongly reccomend them.
