I need to fabricate a proper tack strap. The original sail had foot slides, but this one is loose footed. I like it.
Note the jury-rigged boom strap at the clew. I'll have to sew something better... though it worked perfectly.
Draft forward, lots flatter
- 8.62 oz High Aspect Dacron Mainsail
- Five full battens with adjustable battslide fittings
- 3 reefs
- UHMW wear strips
- Sail area equal to original design specifications
- Standard boom cover
And by way of comparison... Before. We're be zipping to windward!
