    Question Sailmaker for 7'8" Nutshell Pram?

    Looking for a sailmaker for a 7'8" Nutshell Sailing Pram. I have previously used Stuart from Dabbler Sailmakers for several other projects, but he is completely booked. Any recommendations?

    If I had a dollar for every girl who found me unattractive, eventually they would find me attractive.

    Support your local sailmaker. You'll need him for maintenance, sometimes in a hurry.
    Where are you located?

    I think there are several independent sailmakers in Marblehead.
    You might also try Ralph DiMattia in Squantum (south shore) and the lofts on the south coast, Sperry in Marion and Harding in Mattapoisett.
    Keep the local independent guys alive. You don't benefit from the fancy tech or overhead of the big guys like Doyle or North and the Asian mail-order lofts won't be there for service..

    they're easy to find, too, because they advertise in woodenboat magazine

    The sails sold through WB are cut, sewn and finished by Bohndell at their small shop in Rockport, Maine. Good people.
