Anyone have any suggestions on how to repair a couple of Mistral sails where the stitching has come apart. These sails are Mylar on one side, don't want to spend tons as they are not worth much. Ottawa or Toronto area would be best , thnks

North Sails in Etobicoke does a very good job at very reasonable price.
Mind you, if you have a mylar Mistral sail, it's likely 30yrs old , you might be better off getting a cheap used 10yrs old sail which will perform a lot better.

Good advice above - your old sails may need too much work to be worth the cost, grab something used and enjoy.

Agreed. Your old sails are probably not worth repairing as guys are usually giving sails like that away.

I hear you & totally understand & a new rig/board is definitely in the near future , however these 2 sails are almost brand new I know the past owner & he never used them . Has anyone heard of a glue or adhesive that might adhere to the Mylar film & band aid these old relects until I can step up to some newer equip ? thnks
