Re: Jeanneau Attalia

I point at about the same degree's as Jens. Sometimes a bit higher. Then again, I have laminate sails. I personally see no reasions to go with dacron these days, as laminates are about as cheap as dacron, but seem to streth less etc. So one gets a bit more power etc in lighter and heavier winds.

Not sure doing the bow would be a good thing. Putting an extension on the rear, ie a true sugar scoop has been done to many of this era. One way to extend the WL of your boat cheaply anyhow. Look at the sunshine 36/38 boats to see how this was done.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
