Buying sails

I've really had my eye on buying sails from a UK sailmaker, but am alo less certain this week after a good friend of mine was quite badly let down by a well known UK loft.... Delivered horribly late, lost order, wrong spec (not triple stitched, missing one reef, wrong headboard).... And finally to finish it all off, when delivered, too small!

So, someone remind me why I shouldn't save £1000 and buy them from Hong Kong?

After all, the material is the same quality and lots of well known manufacturers use them...

I've also managed to buy a pair of sea sure cockpit eye bolts (the nice ones that clip down out of the way when not in use) for a very reasonable price.... Another winter job!
