Minney's Yacht Surplus

Know any good sail makers? Got some tips for sail repairs or cleaning? What are your tuning tips for Islander rigging? Got any good cotter or clevis pin stories? If you replace your sails how do you get that great Islander icon back on them?

Just wanted to tip my hat to this place:

http://minneysyachtsurplus.com/

I recently purchased what amounts to probably a 90% jib to replace the one that was thoroughly trashed when I got my boat. Price was unbeatable, and the sail is completely crisp still - just a little dirty upon arrival which was exactly as described. Fast shipping, huge inventory.. and you can even find boat specific sails if desired. I just picked a headsail based on loose measurements, went for something in the ballpark for what I wanted, a little heavier cloth, and budget friendly. (I put my boat on Lake Ontario this year and wanted a decent smaller jib for the days the 150 just won't be ideal - this works perfectly).

Always handy to have a good resource! Looks like they're down in the homeland of the Islanders
