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

As unlikley as is might be (actually the chances are down right astronomical) I located a used racing mainsail that will fit my boat with no alterations (Sobstad Genesis Platinum laminate Mylar/taffeta etc) , it's loose footed, but that's not a problem and might even be a good thing. It has minor issue with the leech which can be fixed with a reinforcing leech tape (which is a good thing to have anyway), but over all is in good shape and a really good price, it will give me the chance to try out a laminated sail with out investing a lot of money (and it gives me a chance to save up enough to have a new sail cut)
