|Looking for used hank on head sails for a 1982 mark 3, I really need a 120-125 and a 100%. Does anyone know of any new sail makers lower in cost?
please email me , email@example.com

[This post combines a buy/sell request with a plea for information, so it technically violates our one rule on this Forum: no soliciting of private responses unless for the purpose of buying or selling something. Wy the policy? When the conversation happens in the Forum, we all learn, which is the point of having a public Forum. Please read this explanation.
That said, I'm not going to bother deleting the address despite the query about cheap sailmakers being in violation of the policy above. Why? Because I don't think there is any such thing, so the answers won't mean much - you can get a few dollars off, but you'll trade those dollars for variables like inferior cloth or absurdly long delivery times. Like the man said, there's no free lunch.
This does not mean I am relaxing a no-private-messages policy that serves us well; future posts that combine a buy/sell request with a general question will have the request or the question deleted, depending on how I feel that day. Finally, the poster might benefit from reading Scott Schoeler's sails for sale post - they're almost exactly the sizes he's looking for and putting on hanks is not expensive.
