Re: If I had to get one new sail, what would it be?

I'm going to echo all the votes for the 135! Easier to manage and is a good versatile sail. On my boat I have a 150 and a 110 on roller furling...I find the 150 hard to handle when it pipes up and the 110 lacking in light air. In really light air, my 150 can be hard to shape as the weight of the sail with the sunbrella UV strip weights down the clew. While this dosent apply to your boat as you have hanks...it does support overboard's comment on finding a used drifter for the really light air days. The 135 is a nice balance.
