Probably should get a few books on sail design. Cutting down a #2 to become a yankee may not be the best use of the sail or your time and money. It might be easier, and provide a much more useful sail, if you sold the #2 and bought a yankee kit from SailRite. The cut of the panels is going to be fairly different on a yankee versus a #2 and the weight of the material is probably a bit light for a proper yankee.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
