About Our Sails

SailboatsToGo offers our own nylon sails, original Snark nylon sails, Sailmaker Neil Pryde dacron sails, white dacron sails, and sails for the Snark Sea Skimmer and Sea Devil. 

Satisfaction guaranteed! Our nylon sails are very well made durable nylon sails that will fit Super Snark, Sea Snark, Sears Whirlwind, Spring Creek, SailboatsToGo (that's us!), Paddle ski, Sea Eagle, and SOAR.  Our Snark Sailboat sail is 45 square feet, nylon.  It will fit your Sea Snark or Super Snark just like the original.  A great many Snark owners have bought these from us, we receive many messages from satisfied customers (see Messages from Customers section below) and we have never had a single one ask for a refund, but if you're not happy with it, you can be the first! We also carry original equipment Snark brand nylon sails.

Our white dacron and Sailmaker Neil Pryde International dacron sails are more durable and hold their shape better (stretches much less) than nylon in strong winds, which will give you better upwind performance.

These are all true, aerodynamic, shaped sails, which means they are cut and sewn to have the necessary camber (3-dimensional curvature) for creating aerodynamic lift.  They have sleeves for the boom and gaff and cutouts in the right places for tieing on the sheet and halyard and for the mast ring.   Get yourself going again with a new sail for your Snark!

These sails are used on canoes, ice boats, inflatable boats, kayaks and dinghies, in addition to Snark styrofoam boats

Colors and Sizes and Types

Colors: 14 different sail color schemes!  

Sizes:  The 45 square foot ("SF") sails fit Sea Snarks and Super Snarks and some older Sunflowers.   But all Sunflowers built after 1983 (and some older Sunflowers) take the 55 SF sail (scroll farther down this page for 55 SF sail offerings).   Some pre-1983 Sunflowers take the 45 and some take the 55, so that's where we have to take size identification to the next level.   But it's easy:   A 45 SF sail has height and width that are equal to each other.  The 55 SF sail is clearly much taller than its width.   Even if you do not have an old tattered sail, you can compare the two poles that go into the sail sleeves.   If one pole ("spar") is much longer than the other, you need a 55.  If the two poles are of equal length to each other, you need a 45.  Note:  We are NOT talking about the mast.  The two poles we are talking about are thinner than the mast, about 3/4-inch diameter or less.  The mast is a third pole and it is 1 1/8" diameter.  More info click here    The foregoing is the only method for determining sail size.  We cannot tell by model number, serial number or any other way. 

Types

We have nylon sails below and we have dacron sails, farther down the page. Dacron is a premium-grade material that is stiffer and less stretchy, so the sail holds its intended shape better, even in strong winds and after years of service.   Within the Dacron category, we have a generic white sail, and we have name-brand Neil Pryde sails in various color schemes.  The Neil Pryde sails have premium-quality workmanship, such as heavier stitching and heavier reinforcement at stress points.

NEIL PRYDE INTERNATIONAL DACRON SAILS (45 SQ FT and 55 SQ FT)  (put in cart to see shipping cost)

Dacron (polyester) is a stiffer, less stretchy material than nylon.  A Dacron sail will hold its shape and not stretch out in strong winds.  It's also a heavier material and therefore stronger, as compared to nylon.   Neil Pryde is a widely-respected sail maker, known for quality workmanship.  You will be impressed with the extra heavy stitching on these sails, done with the greatest attention to detail.  Shipping cost will show up in your cart.  It's not much (around $10).

WHITE DACRON SAILS (45 and 55 square foot)

This is a house brand sail (not Neil Pryde) but still very good quality.  As compared to nylon, dacron (polyester) is a stiffer, less stretchy material so the sail will hold its shape and not belly out in strong winds.  More Pictures and info click here.

Bag for Sail & Poles-  Great for Car Topping!

Sail, Mast and Spar Bag:  Collect all those poles and ropes and the sail in one long skinny car-toppable bag.  

Heavy duty drawstring bag measures 12' 8" long and about 6 inches in diameter (9 inches wide if empty and flat). Fits our spars, sail and mast without folding them. Click Here for Photos. Fits spars, sail and mast (all the aluminum poles, in other words) of Super Snark or Sunflower. Protects the sail from flapping and shredding itself when car-topping. Keeps all these vital parts together in your garage or basement so they don't get lost or forgotten between sailing excursions. Protects sail from sun, wind and rain when stored or transported outside. If you have our folding spars and mast, you don't absolutely need a full length bag like this, but it's a nice option to save the time of folding and unfolding. Add to Cart  Check Price

5211 Mast extension for Super Snark, Sunflower or Sea Snark replaces mast cap - SAILBOATS TO GO EXCLUSIVE PRODUCT!
Get more headroom under your boom! This item replaces the mast cap and extends the top of your mast 6 inches. The mast cap is no longer needed because this extension has a beautiful stainless steel or thermoplastic eye at the top for your halyard. Free shipping in lower 48 states. Having the boom higher also means you can heel over more without the boom hitting the water -- a great benefit for those who like to push the limits for sailing thrills! Fits standard OEM masts, not our own masts. A taller mast makes a big difference in comfort. Theoretically, it reduces stability a little, but the effect is so minor you probably will not even notice it. And, any time you want to revert to the original sail height, that's easily done. 

Also consider item 5209, which offers a choice of height settings up to 15 inches of extension, and is similar in principle.

Messages from Customers

"Thanks so much for sending the sail out so promptly.  It arrived yesterday.  It's all set up in the backyard right now for my son to see for his birthday present!  It was a pleasure doing business with you."  --   Robyn M.

"Love doing business with your company.  I'm telling all my friends to buy sails from SailboatsToGo!" -- Joe L. 

"...went out yesterday with my daughter. We had a wonderful time and everyone commented on the beauty of the sail. Thanks for your prompt response.  I am very pleased with your sail and service and will recommend you." -- Mark Y.

"The new sail seems to be superior to the old Snark original in both material choice and construction."   Martin M.

"We received the sail for the Snark Sunflower on Wednesday.   Thank you for your prompt replies and shipment of the sail. We installed the sail and took it out last night.  It fit well, and worked well also. My son and I are very pleased with the sail and again thank you for the great response to my inquiries.  This has enabled my son to enjoy the sailboat a few days before he leaves home for 2 months.  I will happily recommend your business to anyone who needs sails and related items. Thank you very much!"  Tom and Seth B.   June 2011

"Hi, Jim - Just a note to let you know I just spent a very enjoyable weekend sailing our Super Snark with the new spar set we ordered earlier this month. Set up went very smoothly, thanks to the excellent set of instructions you supplied. The pictures were especially helpful. I found your spar set to be far superior to the original tubing and fittings that were on our Snark. That mast slide sure instills confidence compared to the flimsly fitting on the original. I hope to enjoy sailing on our pond here on Cape Cod as long as the weather holds up. Thanks again for your prompt service and excellent product." -  Chris

Interesting Facts About The Snark Sail Design

The Snark Sail is referred to as a "Lateen" style sail, which means the mast is short and the sail has another spar, called a gaff, which carries the peak of the sail up much higher than the top of the mast, with the gaff slightly angled so that the lower front corner of the sail is in front of the mast.   The Lateen style sail originated in ancient times and is still used all over the world on small boats, especially in India and the Arab world.  Those fishing and trading vessels often use rags and old grain sacks stitched together for sail cloth.  A Lateen sail can hold its own against a sloop rig of equal total sail area (sloop rigs have a jib and mainsail) in a race of otherwise equal boats and crews.  Don't believe what some say about jibs increasing the efficiency of the main.  Snark and SailboatsToGo and other users of the Lateen sail plan are continuing a long and proud tradition in sailing.
