Supercat sails  Bottom

  • The standard answer (with which I generally agree) is that for all things Supercat, go to the factory.

    That said, has anyone had any Supercat sails built elsewhere, and what are your results?

    Hunter Riddle at Schurr sails is now my primary guy because he does a great job and is local—7 hours away kind of local.

  • Probably a good question on the Aquarius forum..I just got sails from Schurr. I would feel totally confident in their ability to make you a great set of sails. Good Luck.

  • Well the answer on that forum is for sure factory, which is ok. I asked Hunter if he’s done any SC sails but he’s out til Monday.

  • I've got a gorgeous squaretop pentex main from Jay Glaser for my SC20, and I've had 20 sails from Elliot Pattison that were fast and durable, also pentex. I think any name loft that has lots of multihull experience will build great sails, I'd be less comfortable with a loft who's primary experience is with mono sails. Whirlwind Sails are worth a look as well. With all that said, buying sails from Tom at Aquarius keeps him in business, which benefits all of us who love SC/ARC boats, and you can be sure it will be top quality.
  • I agree with Dave on supporting Aquarius, and have on everything but sails....

    I got a main and self tacking jib for my SC20 and a self tacking jib for a SC17 from Randy Smyth. Well pleased with both. The 20 main was a monster! I got a square top main for my 17 from one of the sail makers mentioned in earlier posts and was not happy with it. Many others have gotten sails from them and have been pleased so maybe mine was a fluke or something.

  • If I’m not mistaken Schurr builds some of Randy’s designs. He’s also local and I’m very proud to be a 1% acquaintance (meaning I’ve been couple of races, far behind). So I guess if I need some SC sails I’ll check the factory, Smyth, and Schurr.

    Thanks all!

  • Schurr was the builder of Randy's sails until he shipped production over seas. I have heard that the quality is not as good as when Schurr was building his sails.

  • The Smyth sails I got for my old 20 were made oversees. They were well made.
