Re: Can sails shrink?
The bolt rope shrinks most definitely... A decent sail repair shop might be able to get it back to full height, but it still won't be great, but it'll buy you a season or two.
Hence the term "bagged out," or blown out... the luff and the foot shrink, but the cloth is the same size, so the shape gets "bagged," or larger curve...
The Capri 25, cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for...
"We're going the wrong way!"
"Yeah but look how fast we're going!"
