Architectural Net Installation
Hello Etienne, first of all I want to mention that the experience with the nets has been wonderful!, thank you.
Also I want to ask for the best way to clean them, or the best products to do it.
Multihull Net Happy Customers
I finally installed the new Tramp Net
and thought you might like to see the result. I'm quite pleased with the fit and finish. I'm a happy customer!
I just used my new mastclimber
to replace a burned out spreader light. I asked my wife to take a picture but now it looks like you can't see the actual climbing hardware. I'm using my own bosun's chair. But I wanted you to know I'm happy with your product. Thanks. I also found that it works just fine to connect the halyard to a cleat at the bottom of the mast rather than at the side of the boat.
I got the Genoa Sleeve
installed this weekend and its working great! Also noticed the two cleats, which is a great improvement and makes tightening it a lot easier. I'm ready for rain up here now thanks to your quick turn around, many thanks!
ATN Genoa Sleeve for behind the mast Roller Furling Mainsail
I wanted to tell you that I am using the sleeve that you made for me on my behind-the-mast roller furling main. Your Genoa Sleeve
seems to be the perfect solution.

I just wanted to thank you for the prompt repair/replacement of my genoa sleeve. This is the kind of service you have provided me since the early 1990s when I bought my first (of 2) Spinnaker Sleeves
, a Tacker
and later the Mastclimber
I have known Etienne Giroire of ATN for over thirty years. Not only is he a great sailor, he has invented some great products to make sailing more enjoyable and safe. I bought two items from him before my wife and I set sail to do a circumnavigation in our 52 ft. ketch Lolita in 1999. The ATN Gale Sail
(storm jib) was used often, in survival storms to just average trade winds of 30 to 35 knots for days at a time. Easy and safe, it is a must on any yacht. The ATN Spinnaker Sleeve
made using a Spinnaker easy and fun. I know I would not have even taken the spinnaker along without his sleeve. I am in the process of retiring again from selling yachts and setting sail on my new yacht (48 Amel Ketch) to the South Pacific and I'm buying both the spinnaker sleeve and the Gale Sail from my friend ATN.
I want to compliment ATN on superb customer service. I bought a Spinnaker Sleeve
from them five years ago and have been happily using it ever since.
During a race this summer, the pennant broke due to crevice corrosion. ATN had me send the sleeve back and replaced it with a Dyneema pennant and also repaired a hole in the sleeve, all under warranty. Great service from ATN!

"I purchased your Gale Sail
for my Beneteau 445 and used it 30-45 knots of wind on the passage from Bermuda to the Chesapeake. It worked great! We flew the Gale Sail almost the entire time."
I love the Gale Sail
you recently sent me!
I was out in 25 to 30 knots and found it easy to set up and boat responded beautifully. I was surprised how much punch it added to my single-reefed main -- and at how well I could point. I was tacking through 75 degrees. I wouldn't expect to be able to do that in any kind of sea, but still it's nice to know that I can claw to windward if need be.
The sail is beautifully made. It will be nice peace of mind just having it aboard.
I met you at the Miami boat show and purchased a Mastclimber
and a Gale Sail
I have been up the mast twice in the last three days.
The mast climber works very well (and impressed my neighbors!).
Many thanks for your excellent products.
I found my picture of using your Mastclimber
. We chatted at the Chicago
Strictly Sail Boat Show in January. I love this thing.
