Hi
I am ready to purchase new sails and a Mack or Stack pack.
Would appreciate any advice.
Thanks

If you don't have one already, I'd suggest looking into a Strong Track from Tides Marine. It really makes raising that gigantic main sail much easier.

Anthony,

I am looking at new sails for me Freedom 40/40 #16. Was quoted $9,500 for both sails. Do you mind me asking what quotes you received? If you mind, simply ignore this posting

I had a new set made this past year by Thurston (Quantum) in Bristol RI for my F28. Am very happy with them and they know their way around Freedoms.

Anthony,

I am having trouble replying to your PM. I am not sure why.

Can you use this anonymous email address for me and I will reply with my identity and usual email address

Freedom 33

Precision sails Dacron 400 Series
Main $2100
Mizzen $1500

That was Black Friday prices.

Ulmer quoted me $4300 for the main. Stated the mizzen was just under $4000.

These are all single ply sails with 2 reefs and full batten.

Not sure if that helps.
