The traditions of craftsmanship in sailmaking are quickly disappearing under the pressure of the same technology that brings us the disposable boat. Not so at Clark Sailmakers. We continue to hand sew sails for boats both old and new, large and small. Our specifications and the quality of their execution are unsurpassed in the sailmaking world today. If you care enough about your yacht to think about keeping her awhile, you'll respect the integrity of our work. Call or write for our illustrated literature, and the real truth about sailmaking yesterday, today and tomorrow.
