I’m ordering a new Quantum Fusion #1 for my Schock 35. My sailmaker mentioned I could do taffeta on one side of the sail to help durability. Is it worth it to spend the extra $400 or is it generally unneeded? We do weekly beercan races and 2-3 bigger regattas a year. I’m also on the Great Lakes so the boat is only in the water and racing from May to October. Is it unrealistic to think I could get 5 season out of the sail without the taffeta? Does it really make that sail that much more durable?
I am also not interested in going to a different sailmaker. Quantum is local, and their support and customer service to my area is fantastic.
