What a difference new sails make

Doug Owens spent over 25 years sailing his various boats on San Francisco Bay, then cruised the Pacific, the Caribbean and the Atlantic for eight more. But until the spring of 2003 he had never outfitted any of his boats with a complete new suit of sails.

And what a difference those new sails made. "Aloha," his Hans Christian 38, "stands up to her canvas," to quote Doug. Instead of heeling too much and demanding she be reefed too early, the boat sails upright and handles easily in the Bay's heavy airs. The shape, the fit, the workmanship and the service sold Doug and his wife Andrea on Pineapple Sails.

In fact., the new set of sails has Doug "...recommending Pineapple Sails to anyone who will listen."

So listen. If you want your boat to behave better, give us a call. Race or cruise, you'll see the difference.
