How many colours can I use for my Spinnaker or Cruising chute?
We normally make the sails from a combination of up to 4 colours, we recommend that you have a dark colour on the edges to enable the sail to be more visible and therefore easier to trim when sailing in bright sunlight

Do you make coloured sails?
We have a stock of assorted coloured Dacron's, please ask and we will be happy to advise on the materials suitability for your requirements.

What is covered by your 5 year Cruising Sail Guarantee?
Material and Workmanship, should the sail fail through faulty material or workmanship during its first 5 years then we will rectify or replace as we see fit. We do require the sail to come in for valeting at the end of each year and we inspect for damage. Should we find any manufacturing or material defects we will rectify these at no cost to you. The valeting is charged at the normal rate.

I am building a steel yacht and am unsure where to fit the fairleads etc, can you help?
Chris Jeckells will be more than happy to visit you to discuss and advise on the best positions and layout for you, which is not necessarily the same as the original plan because everyone's requirements are different.
