This spring I switched out my roller furler (it was 25 years old) and elected to add hanks to my foresail instead. A local sail shop was willing to do it but at a cost and considerable delay. Preferring the DIY route by nature I began looking around for options. Note - other sailors advised against DIY for various reasons. Before making a final decision, I called Sailrite and spoke to the resident sailmaker. He was so helpful - most productive 10 minutes of the spring sailboat prep process.
Based on his recommendations I ordered hanks and grommets and the die set spur and hole cutter from Sailrite. Job took about an hour and saved me well over $125 vs quote from sail loft.
On a scale of 1-10 I would rate my experience somewhere in the 20's. Sailrite is a first class company. I highly recommend them. They will be my first call on all future projects. Also, the how to videos are excellent!
