Re: Genoa Cut Flat for reefing????

Always great to hear of another DIY sailor. My boat came with a conventional jib furler system. One of the sails is a gigantic 160% Genoa which rolls up just fine. I don't think it is an issue to worry about. Having the right shape on your headsail is very important. Good luck with your project.
