Alright, I didn't get any answers in the open sailing board so here goes. I'm looking for new sails for my 18. Just want to know what other have. Good or bad. I'm not a racer and cost is a point. And yes I know you get what you pay for.

Peak sails seems to be a great bang for your buck. I've read good things from anyone who has purchased from them.

Thanks for the feed back. I Have heard good things about whirlwind, anybody have something to say about Peak? In the mean time I'm having a go at stiching my jib. Spring has hit hard in the midwest. :D

kjd, Be careful if you decide to deal with Peak sails....They were Kelly-Hanson before a bankrupsy and had many problems with customer issues... Check first..dj

First thing I did was check with my dealer. Just trying to gather as much info as I can. Sail's are a large purchase for me. Thank everyone for the feed back.
