Re: New Puget Sound Sailor needs jib advice
Is this your boat Adam?
Nope, actually my boat is in Vancouver. And ours is just plain white. Well, speckled gray. Okay I guess there's the occasional dull orange spot.
We just need to sit on the leeward side to force shape into it.
Agreed, that's the only way to do it. We also had a dacron 150%, but we store it at home because the drifter replaces it in whatever conditions we'd use it in, is lighter, stuffs into a smaller space, and doesn't seem to get caught up on the shroud during those slow light-air tacks nearly as much.
Also agree with the others who say the 135% is a great general-purpose sail.
