Re: '83 Jason 35 hull thickness???

The Valiant 40 is 3/8" thick at the sheer. They haven't been falling apart for the last 39 years. Coronado 25 an inch thick? That is crazy. I'd have to see it to believe it.

Best to do both, move the mast forward and add the sprit. But you can't just guess at it. Work with Ted to do it right. "Wind catching ability"? Now you're getting technical with me Never heard of that term before. If you mean "add more sail area" then yes.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
