Some advice needed: Just ripped the biggest hole in the biggest panel of my biggest sail yesterday. Do I bin it, tape it, or get it professionally fixed?
Cheers, Steve.

Comiserations Steve, but is the sail old, new, usefull, B.O.S. or worth saving ? I tend to mylar tape any small or big splits on the monofilm, but if it's the fabric on the luff or it goes over the seams on the monofilm, I might get it repaired, depending on how usefull it is to you. ..... any good ? or is my advice about as usefull as a B.O.S. which is probaly how your sail is handling at the moment.

At a guess you would be looking at about £45 for a large panel replaced. Worth it, only you can decide that one.
