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
In fact., the new set of sails has Doug "...recommending
Pineapple Sails to anyone who will listen."
If you want your boat to behave better, give us a call. Race
or cruise, you'll see the difference.
