He does appear to like that number
Presumably saving up for his second Rolls Royce…..


I remind myself to always always get a quote - no matter
how small the job may seem

His reason was the sail was very large and extremely
heavy and it took several people to keep moving the sail
around so he could sew in the six ( 6) cringles

As a comparison, we had our mainsail repaired by North
Sails in Antigua
One man was able to move the sail around all on his own
and work the machine including pulling the sail through
ALL ON HIS OWN so I know that 'several' people are not
required

A loft floor is smooth for this reason, so the sail slides
very easily
