Thames Barge Sails
« on: July 22, 2021, 09:20:41 am »

Hi all,
I have a nice but elderly large Thames Barge which I want to recommission and start sailing.
The rigging is in poor condition but I am steadily repairing it as nesc.
The white Stay sail on the front is in very poor condition . The material is rotting and although I have patched here and there it is too far gone. I think the other sails are serviceable, they are brown maybe the coloured ones last better
It will make a good pattern for the new one. My question is, will any member on here be willing to make me a new staysail pretty similar to the pattern, obviously for the appropriate fee?.
Or can anybody recommend which of the sail making companies will make a traditional white cloth sail?  .
Thanks regards

Nylet Sails make traditional cotton sails made to order. I've not bought cotton sails from them myself though.

Hi thanks for the suggestion . I had a chat with Frank at Nylet. Sounds like he can supply exactly what I need.
Regards
