Murrays Custom Hobie 18 Main Sail 6.0oz Dacron
Patterned after the factory Hobie 18 main sail, spec-ed by Murrays and crafted by Hyde Sails UK. With over 50 years of sail making experience, Hyde knows how to pack their sails with features and value. Hyde starts with Challenge 6.03-oz. Dacron®, that is computer-controlled laser cut. The panels and patches are assembled with a special two sided adhesive tape before they are machine stitched. The sail is then “finished” by adding any boards, rings, hanks etc. The last step is quality control, the QC specialists use a check sheet as they go over each sail for flaws or errors and make sure the original specifications have been met before the Murrays/Hyde Sails label is attached. Each sail includes a viewing and two tell-tale windows.
The base price is for a solid color 6.0-oz main sail, multicolored sails are also available for an additional charge. Available colors include Dark Blue, Medium Blue, Flo Orange, Red, Brown, Yellow, Flo Yellow, Torquise Green, Black, Grey and White.
White sails are likely in stock, colored sails are made to order. Custom sails may take several weeks to produce.
