New sail supplier WELL WORTH A QUOTE

Post by madaz » Wed Apr 20, 2011 6:25 pm

A bit of a rap for a very good bloke doing a really good service.

When we launched our boat we put some used sails on to get moving.

After shredding the main a month or two back I made some enquiries with Derick Green of DG Marine in Patterson Lakes. VIC http://www.dgmarine.com.au/ They are an agent for Rolly TASKER Sails.

His service was second to none, he got on a plane and flew down to Hobart. I paddled him out to our cat where he measured the rig, (can be measured from a rig not yet installed also of course) He provided a price to supply a fully battend main, a headsail, a storm sail and an MPS with sock for a little more than my local quotes to supply a main only. They also supply furlers.

The sails arrived at my door three weeks later and fit perfectly, the quality is brilliant. You can deal direct but in dealing with the agent the cost was no extra and all the customs issues/clearance/duties/gst are taken care of.

This bloke is well worth a call for anyone after new sails.


They also offer insurance although I cant comment on that as I already have it.
