Northwave Sails - What Say You?

I see a few Northwave sails in the gallery on the site, so I am asking anyone out there who has one, sailed one, or even fondled one what they think about the Northwave brand, as I have not seen a recent specimin in person.  Are they constructed well with attention paid to their finishing (seams, etc.)?  Worth the money? Thanks.DaveSee More
