After 10 years and and many thousands of miles my tiki 38 sails need replacing. I have just been quoted $8,000NZ for the 2 main sails alone. The sail maker in New Zealand explained that the biggest cost will be labour as there is quite a lot of work involved in making them. I don't doubt him but on the other hand he has never made any soft wing sails for a wharram before. I would love to buy locally and support my local sail maker but his price seems very high. :o Does anyone have any suggestions about experienced wharram sail makers elsewhere.
PS. I have just joined the forum. we use our tiki38 "Catknapp" for diving and whale watching in the Kingdom of Tonga http://www.tonga-dive.com as well as cruising
