Sail cover for my HA18

Hi folks,

My Herreshoff America "vintage" sail cover is finally too raggedy to put back on the boat.  Has anyone near Fall River, MA or Bristol, RI, ever replaced their aging sail cover? 

Thanks in advance for any recommendations or advice.

Thurston sails made a new one for me, they are the original maker of the sails for your boat and have the dimensions

Tip... make a template from the cover and save it... even better tip.. remember where you save it when its needed years later

Hi folks, thanks for the good advice, including the memory related tip...!
I did have Thurston make a cover for me, and Neil Thurston even offered to take some measurements directly from Pixie at her slip, (I keep her in Portsmouth, one town over from Thurston's location in Bristol). These folks have always been awesome to work with, they refurbed my original flag sail a few years ago. I will definitely buy my new sail from them when I can afford it.
