A Perfect Match

Jack Szilasi’s Tanton 43 is an unusual boat. “Toucan” is a cat ketch, with a pair of mainsails on freestanding masts and no jibs or spinnakers.

Jack spent several years restoring the boat and outfitting her for cruising.  He and his partner, Judy Tillson, kept the name, since “two can” sail the boat so easily.  And because ”Toucan” flies like a bird when the sails are set wing-and-wing.

Jack chose Pineapple Sails for our expertise in designing and building his sails to match the boat’s unique rig and to meet his and Judy’s cruising requirements.

That same expert attention can be yours.  Give us a call and let’s talk about matching sails to your boat.
