Made it easy!!!
Reviewed Apr 2018
I would like to recommend Carl Craaford from ‘Sail Exchange’, for all your sail requirements. He is a gentleman, genius, a patient professional, and a perfectionist.
Upon purchasing my TopHat Mk-2, it became clear that after 15 years of neglect, I needed to restore the vessel and set things up for sailing. ‘Windsong’ had a sail inventory, but the Headsail on the furler were knackered and the Main was on the way out.
I decided to purchase a new Headsail and Mainsail from Far East Sails in Hong Kong. A task that seamed easy and economic at the time but required that descriptions, and specifications of sails and rig be impeccable!
The first rigger I engaged wasn’t up to the task. He measured the mainsail short, and was unable to provide all the details required. I then contacted Carl Craaford from Sail Exchange.
Carl was amazing! Upon inspecting the vessel he collected the specifications required for Far East to manufacture, and sent them to me in order to finalise the order.
The Sails arrived, Carl fitted them, (they fitted like a glove)we went for a sail! Everything was spot on!
For anyone looking to buy new sails, and needing assistance in this department, Carl is a perfectionist, and a true professional. Thanks so much Carl, you made it easy!!!
Very best wishes to you and Bettina,
Mike, Earlwood, NSW.
