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

Wolf,
Do you know what kind of boat that the sail is from. Your boat has a lot of mast bend, and so you will want a sail cut for a boat with similar 'pre-bend' or the sail will be too flat for your boat.

Also mylar/polyester taffeta sails are very short lived sails compared to other laminates.
