We can repair almost anything! From minor repairs to extensive damages, regardless of the brand, Hallett Canvas & Sails will provide repair services that will not only complete the specific repair but will also carefully examine the entire sail or canvas item to ensure quality product before completion. As long as the material in the sail or canvas product is not rotten or unserviceable, we can repair it. For prompt service at reasonable rates, bring your sail in on a Monday with repairs done by the following Friday, just in time for the weekend, even in the busy season!

Winter Service

Sail Winter Service

At our 5000sq. ft. loft, we carefully wash, check, repair, evaluate and store your sails and canvas. In 2011 we added our specially designed wash tank which circulates the cleaning products among the sails and canvas to get a thorough cleaning. After the Canvas and sails soak, they are pulled or removed from the tank, lightly scrubbed, and rinsed. They are then dried, carefully wrapped and stored until your boat is ready for them. Our service has no hidden costs. For the low price we wash your sails or canvas, evaluate the sail or canvas condition, give you an hour of repair labor, and provide storage for the winter.

Sail Re-cuts

Often a sails shape is blown out and baggy, nevertheless the integrity of the cloth is still good. This is common among older Dacron sails. Dacron is great because it will last a long time but it will also eventually stretch over time. We can re-cut the shape of the sail to increase its performance and your ability to trim it properly. We can also re-cut sails that have never trimmed correctly, that were purchased from other lofts. Re-cutting is not just confined to sails. We also alter and correctly fit canvas that is baggy, or too tight.


We can give you a professional evaluation of your sails or canvas. This is standard with winter service to let you know how well your sails or canvas are holding together. This is a FREE service that we provide. We also do evaluations for insurance and brokerage deals.

Rigging Service

At Hallett Canvas & Sails we service many makes of Genoa Furling and Main Furling Units, Main Flaking Systems, Dutchman Systems, Lazy Jack Systems and Strong Tides Systems, just to name a few. We can come to you or you can come to us!

  • General Sail Care
  • Sail Conversion

From simple tears to complete sail reconstruction, every job receives the same attention to detail and eye to aesthetics. Most sail lofts can repair a tear, but it takes a truly skilled sailmaker to make the repair disappear. All of our service technicians engage the projects as if they were their own, and strive to ensure that repairs are not only structurally sound, but also cosmetically pleasing.

Let our service team help you get more performance out of your older sails. Using Quantum’s proprietary iQ Technology®, our service technicians and designers can evaluate your sail’s existing shape and develop a plan to return the sail to its originally designed profile—thus squeezing more speed and performance out of older sails. Often a relatively simple (and inexpensive) luff curve change can have a profound impact on your sail’s performance.   Learn more about Precision Recuts

The initial sail inspection is the most important service your sailmaker can provide, and Quantum is undeniably the industry leader. Our service technicians are painstakingly trained in the art of inspecting a sail, because it’s not enough to simply identify the needed repairs—we figure out why the sail needs repair and do our best to solve the problem, reducing future repair costs and downtime. At Quantum, we understand that the hardest part of sailmaking isn’t identifying the tear—it’s dissecting why the tear occurred and crafting a response that addresses the symptoms as well as the root problem. When inspecting a sail, we don’t simply look for damage, we leverage our incredible understanding of sail construction to critically evaluate the entire structure. Inspection Checklist

Aside from storing your sails/canvas when they are clean and dry, the single best thing you can do to extend their life is have them serviced on an annual basis. Our service technicians know how to address small problems early on, thus preventing costly future repairs. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! All of our service technicians have access to Quantum’s industry-leading standards for sail construction, ensuring that all maintenance performed meets our rigorous requirements.

Allow our skilled staff to take some of the headache (and backache) out of your spring commissioning or fall de-commissioning. Don’t have a car big enough for your entire inventory? We can deliver to your yacht, no problem. Need assistance organizing post-regatta sail management? We can help.

Regular washing of your sails and canvas extends their lifespan and keeps them looking newer for longer. Salt crystals are corrosive and abrasive; if left on your sails and canvas, they will damage the fibers and stitching. Additionally, salt crystals will attract water, thus promoting an environment where mildew can thrive. Unlike some of our competitors, we use a non-agitated washing system, which ensures sails/canvas aren’t damaged during the washing process.

Roller furling sails and laminated sails can, unfortunately, provide the right environment for mildew to grow and prosper. The best option is to always store your sails dry and clean, but if mildew does develop, we can help. Quantum has a variety of options to mitigate mildew; speak with your local loft about which option is best for you and your sails. We also recommend coating mildew-susceptible sails with a hydrophobic solution, which will severely limit or completely eliminate future growth.

With Quantum’s extensive network of sail lofts worldwide, you’re never far from assistance. We offer overnight support to many national and regional regattas—check with your local loft for a schedule. Additionally, we often are able to accommodate last-minute repairs, both same day and overnight.

Our world-class service isn’t limited to just sails. Our expert canvas craftsmen can fix almost any textile product. As master craftsmen, we understand the differences between textile products and can expertly repair all of your yacht’s canvas. And just like our sail repairs, it’s not enough simply to fix the issue—we’ll make sure the item looks good as new once we’re done.

If you can dream it, we can build it. Not only are we industry-leading specialists in marine canvas, but we’ve helped pioneer architectural canvas applications. We only use the highest-quality materials available for our fabrications, ensuring your new dodger/sailcover/awning will look fantastic and stand up to the punishment of the elements. Contact your local Quantum loft for more details on what services are available.

After washing your canvas, we strongly recommend applying an additional waterproofing coat. Quantum service technicians take the extra time needed to hand-apply this product, which allows more product to be absorbed by the canvas, thus providing better coverage.

Installed a new roller furling system for you headsail? We can convert existing hank-on sails to utilize your furling system, including measuring your new system to getting the sail installed once complete.

Got an offshore trip planned? Decided that one reef no longer suffices for your shorthanded sailing? We can help you decide where to install the next reef, and install a new reef that will blend into your sail, appearing to have been installed when the sail was newly built.

By converting from partial- to full-length battens, you can dramatically increase the performance of your mainsail. Additionally, sail handling will be made easier during hoisting and dropping.

If you’ve changed your mast or sail handling systems, we can help ensure your existing sails will work with these new systems. A new sail isn’t always the only option.

Using vertical control lines laced through the sail, Dutchman Systems help owners handle, store and flake their mainsails. We can install Dutchman Systems on new and used mainsails. Not every installation is identical; our service technicians have installed countless systems and understand where to install the control lines for maximum control.

This high-performance, ultra-low friction luff track system was designed to handle the higher demands of full-batten mainsails. These systems can be fitted to almost every existing mast with little difficulty, and without having to un-step the mast.

Setting a spinnaker is easy; it’s the dousing that’s difficult. Spinnaker socks are an economical solution to using spinnakers with a smaller crew. Most customers find that with the sock they use their spinnaker far more often than before.

No longer limited to high-end racing programs, these systems bring the most amount of control to your cruising and racing spinnakers. Similar to a headsail furling system, these spinnaker handling systems furl your spinnaker, allowing for incredible ease of use and greater confidence in flying these sails. We can retrofit these systems to existing sails as well. Contact your local loft for information on complete rigging packages.

How to Repair Sails On Your Sailboat

How to Repair Sails On Your Sailboat

Even if you try to avoid any sail damage to your sailboat, there will be a time, unfortunately, when they get damaged at sea. So, what happens in the event of sail damage? Of course, the fact is that you’ll have to repair them while at sea and then quickly do a damage assessment. For that, you will probably need someone to lend you a hand and a flat surface to place the sail open. But before we get to the details on how to DIY repair a sail tear on your sailboat remember to be prepared for any unexpected scenario. In other words, having the right tools and supplies onboard gives you a huge advantage in dealing with the problem. Some of the basic tools include a waxed twine, a selection of sail needles, sharp scissors, spare webbing, and a sticky-back Dacron. Let’s move on and see the details!

Stitching your Sails

It is of great importance for a sailor to be able to stitch a sail by hand. If you know how to do this, it’s really practical in case of a chafe or of any other torn seams. The process is really simple. Firstly, make one pass to stitch on one set of diagonals as well as to the opposite direction and then fill in the other set. This can be applied in case you are following an existing zigzag stitch. Moreover, the sailor’s palm will facilitate you in order to force the needle through the fabric, and pliers will help you pull the needle through it. Remember to melt the ends of each knot with a lighter to prevent any loosening, as well as try to make tight stitches to ensure a strong repair. Buy a Sail Repair Kit From Amazon

Patch Repairs

For repairs that are not on a seam, a patch fix is necessary. You can use a Dacron patch for almost everything except spinnakers. Dacron can even stick to many laminate sails on the film side, but not on some resin-based and silicone-covered sails. In addition, dacron tapes come in different forms of thickness rolls and you can also buy larger sheets. Naturally, sails are not flat and they’re made up of panels that create depth. However, due to its design, when the surface you lay it on is flat it might pose you a problem. So do some temporary tucks and folds in the cloth, but away from the rip, and try to keep it flat. So, be patient and follow the below-mentioned procedure:

  • The space you’re going to “work” is essential. Find a dry and safe place with a flat surface like below the saloon table or even on a chopping board.
  • Always clean your fabric of salt with a freshwater rinse. Then allow a few moments for the fabric to dry. Continue by removing any residues with rubbing alcohol. This tip facilitates the drying process, as the alcohol evaporates.
  • Most of the time, some sails (mostly white), tear in lines. For that reason, they shouldn’t be pulled too close together or overlap each other. Otherwise, their shape will change, and thus loading will be created. In case the tear has gone off in different directions repair the longest first.

Seam Repairs

In order to make sure that no seams are starting to appear, try to check your sails daily. It’s not particularly hard for a seam to be unstitched, right in the middle of your voyage. So, if you see any loose stitching, put the sail down immediately, if possible, in order to get it fixed. Stitching a seam back together is a task that requires some time and attention. However, it’s much easier than dealing with ripped fabric. When you stitch seam you just work your way methodically back through all the holes. Try finding a comfy place on deck to work because it might be difficult to move a large sail down below. And remember that “a stitch in time saves nine”!

Patch and Glue

Sail damage can be also caused by a tear to the sun protection on roller-furling headsails. If that happens don’t put new holes in your sail in order to stitch up the tear. This will be really time consuming. Use instead some sticky-back which definitely is an efficient and fast solution. Although you have to take the sail down and put it back up to do that, sticky-back is the answer to this problem.

The first step is to cut the corners of the patch round in order to keep them from peeling off the sail. Then clean the whole area from the repair with acetone, and once the patch is ready, rub from the center to the edge with a scissor handle in order to make sure that it’s totally adhered. Furthermore, sticky-back patches work efficiently for small holes in the actual fabric of the sail. If any holes appear in the fabric then use patches on both sides of the sail, an inch or two larger than the rip in all directions. Keep in mind to slightly counterbalance the two patches so that the load won’t spread out around the repair. Also, take with you ripstop sticky-back to match the colors on any downwind sails, as well as small, pre-cut round patches, which can be practical for small holes in nylon sails.

A lot of spinnakers are no longer stitched and are put together just with tape, so if you need to make a repair it’s a particularly easy task. For most repairs a sticky back spinnaker repair tape is fine. Try not to change the panel’s shape and don’t use too much cloth for the patch. This way you’ll avoid generating unnecessary loads and stress lines. Instead, use the same amount of cloth for the patch so it moves and stretches simultaneously. Also, in case that a tear passes through the panels, repair one panel at a time and not all together. This way each panel is going to move and stretch as it was designed to.

One of the things that need occasional repairs on your sails is fabric. Fabric is one of the most vulnerable parts of your sails. Most of the time, when a sailboat uses its slab reefing it will subsequently wear out the webbing attachments to the tack rings. Therefore a failure of the webbing connection to the mainsail luff slides will be caused. As I’ve mentioned before, the most practical and easy solution to this is to be equipped with twine, a webbing, a needle, and a sailor’s palm . In case you don’t have the correct size of webbing, then Spectra cord can attach a slide fairly well.

These repairs are permanent and won’t take you more than an hour. Another sail damage for many sailboats with full-length battens might be caused by the connection point between the batten and the luff track on the mast. The best thing to do if that happens is to apply West System epoxy along with 3M adhesive sealant 5200 fast cure . This will untie your hands and is also an easy task to perform.

Common Damage Areas

  • Spinnakers : Anything sharp can damage the spinnakers. Especially near the boom, so check that everything is taped up. Also, spinnakers tend to get caught between the shrouds and above the spreaders so consider closing off this gap with a bungee.
  • Spreader and Rig Chafe : When you’re sailing downwind the mainsail spends a lot of time relaxing on the rig. Keep in mind to fill your spreaders with pipe insulation. Moreover, consider having extra reinforcement patches for the spreaders on the batten pockets and at each reef point.
  • Spreader Ends : Always reinforce the sail and put smooth cages around protrusions. In addition, wrap foam around your spreader caps on long voyages.
  • Bottom of the Headsail : Try to lower the halyard enough in order to reach the damaged section. Then reinforce with a sail repair tape . In case the conditions don’t favor you to do so, keep a wrap in the sail to take the pressure off the damage.

Summary – How to Repair the Sails

All this is much easier if your sails aren’t damaged in the first place. But, I know for a fact that sometimes you can’t prevent it from happening. In any case, always be alert to what is going on with the rags. Moreover, always carry a sail repair kit (link to Amazon) on board especially for long-distance cruising. Before leaving for any long trip have also a sailmaker service to check your sails for any weak points. Last but not least, in case that your sails are damaged at sea reinforce any loose stitching immediately and tape both sides of repairs to ensure extra strength.
