    Does anyone know a US based sail maker (Florida if possible) who has a sail that would work with my 16 ft modular Expandacraft catamaran? I'm not looking to put a large rig like most beach cats. Just enough to move it well without fear of capsize. It only weighs about 120 lbs. and the hull sections are roto molded plastic. I'm looking for a sail to add to my production boats, not a one off or used sail.
    Thanks,
    Wesley

    Dave Calvert makes great sails for all multihulls and exotics like yours, give him your needs and let him offer solutions, he's a real out of the box sailor and sailmaker.

    Duckworks has great prices (half of most lofts). I had a jib made and I'm very satisfied. Texas based.

    Thanks

    I will be looking into both of those sail makers. I have BSD sails on my little 12 footer but may need more power for the 16.

    Thanks guys,
    I have BSD sails on my 12 footer but need a little larger sail on the 16 than they make. I could use two BSD rigs but want to keep it simple.
