I read somewhere about how nice it is to hear the soft ruffle of traditional cotton sails. As with nearly all sailors mine is dacron and n-o-i-s-y.
Is it worth the trouble to have cotton sails? How much more work are they really? I know they will mildew more easily but what else? Are they more expensive?
Todd Bradshaw - chime in!
