Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Some racing boats have used a batten or two in their jibs to gain a little unmeasured sail area. It makes for a nice sail but you can't roll it up.

Some loose footed mains have a vertical center batten in the foot roach to support that roach. I prefer a loose footed main for it's shape although on a bigger boat it might make for a harder sail to furl on the boom. On my 26'er it really didn't pose any problem.

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