Live in the Portland, Oregon area? This guide is for you. We stock and carry a large range of small boat sailing gear, but sometimes we don't have exactly what you need. Below are a few local resources that might be of assistance for you.
North Sails Oregon/ Wyckam
Local North Sails loft here in Portland. They do sail repair work, make new sails, and create custom canvas products such as covers, biminis, storage bags, and shade awnings. A great local choice for repairs and custom projects.
Based in San Luis Obispo. SLO makes custom sails, covers, catamaran trampolines and a variety of other custom canvas products. Mostly focused on small boats. All SLO products are made to order with lead times in the 1-3 week range. Great if you're looking for a cover for a boat we do not currently service.
