Avoid the sail repair supply rip-off

Getting tired of being charged huge prices for tiny bits of waxed sail twine and a few needles?

Well here is a way to save 80% and get much much more for that honest price.

Go to the local shoe maker supply shop and ask for 100 meter rolls of waxed shoe repair thread.

Pick your favourite colour then ask for needles.

They usually have them in all sorts of sizes.

Buy a nice selection so you will be well covered.

There you now have a lifetime supply of sail repair supplies.

Pay the nice man and I bet you the whole lot cost you less than one of those branded rolls of 10 meters and a packet of 5 needles.
