I wanted to add that I purchase my sailcloth materials from Dimension Polyant, but they are a source for people in the trade and not for general consumers. Those materials might be available from a reputable repair loft.

What a great post, I rip and tear alot of sails, this is realy going to help me getting my sails fixed " the right way "
Has anyony tried the Sailrite LSZ-1 zig zag sewing machine. ? Or any other good industrial machines that can feed a slippery sail and get you a even looking stitch.

Some machines can be fitted with a "puller" which is a powered roller which helps advance the cloth. My Bernina came with a puller but it always seemed to be getting in the way so I took it off. It worked fine on long seams but was a problem in tight areas or areas where there were irregularities in the surface, like clew grommets. You'll find it is best to practice on an old trash sail until you learn how to gently push or pull on the sail to help it feed.

Bob,

How long did it take you to do that repair?

And, any possibility of a quick lesson on just patching sails? Best materials to use, techniques....
