Re: Windows in a jib....

My sailmaker was a bit reluctant to put one in my jib, as they wear quickly and aren't very strong (his opinion). However, if you really need to see where you're going, it seems like a good solution.

An even better solution is a high-cut-foot jib, mine is 100% but I could go a bit bigger.
