Making sails for Hood in the 1980s gave Mac the insight to build some of the strongest sails in the world, and to apply those concepts to today's SouthSails cruising sails. Expect big reinforcements, hand sewn slides, and someone who understands what you want. Our customers are from all over the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean.

repairs & recuts

Roller fuller conversions. Recut an existing sail or add a reef point. Regular maintenance and service will extend the life of your sails. We offer fast, one- or two-day turnaround on most repairs.


With experience building spinnakers at Hood/St. Pete in the 1980s to the very first seam drive sail at Breakthrough Sails, to plotted sails you design & construct — Mac makes sure your racing sail is fast and will last season after season.
