The reason for this is that the sail industry often contracts manufacturing to different sources in order to achieve economies of scale. What this means is – your C&C 30 Mk 1 may be more unique than you initially thought.
It’s important to note that boats are also frequently customized, so if you suspect that work has been done on yours, it’s best to take your own measurements. When ordering a sail, we will advise you if using the manufacturer’s specifications is appropriate, or if we require you to complete our own measurement forms.
