Looking for a sail shop to do some maintenance/repair on my Hobie 18 sails.

Looking for a good sail repair shop in the Philadelphia, upper Chesapeake area.
Anybody have any experience in this geographical area?

Thanks

http://www.sailcare.com has a good rep. around here... W. PA though. I've heard they are reasonable and accommodating.

Contact Brad at info@ebbtidewindsurfing.com.

He is located at Lake Nockamixon, near Quakertown, PA. He has done numerous sail repairs for me on windsurfing and Hobie sails.

Are you anywhere near the Lansdale area?

I have a Sailrite LSZ machine and I've done some mending to my sails and trapeze harness. I am new to sailing. I bought the machine for other heavy duty projects. But it's intended purpose was the do-it-your-selfer boat person.

What exactly do you need done?

I've also had work done at the North loft in manasquan, NJ. They did a satisfactory job (it was a pretty basic repair).

Here is picture of bolt rope of my sail. Sail is riffable multy-sail. Is that aluminum piece on top original?
