I have an old North Zeta that is otherwise perfect except for wear on the luff sleeve mainly stitching that has worn out and same on the head. Sail is otherwise perfect. Is there someone who can fix it locally?

Try North Sails in Milford. They repaired my old North Pyro back a few years

If you just need restitching. Find a local shop that does canvas work/repair.

Slinky,

Google canvas and sail repair in Westbrook. I know there are few options there.

Here are a few that I found checking a minute ago.

It's been said already, but specifically a shop that repairs horse tack, bridles ..etc.. will have a machine strong enough.

Saddle makers and like use a very special heavy machine, you don't need those, from the description.

If you want to drive east, speak to John at Halsey Sails in Mystic. I've had him fix my Ezzy Infinities a few times as I'd rather fix a sail that I like than buy a new one.
