You can give them the IJPE info from the site for NOW. But when it comes time to order anything, make sure the sailmaker steps on the boat and measures for themself.
Very true, my P measurement was 1/2" smaller than spec which would have resulted in less than full hoist. Even if you order a sail from a distance, you should have a local rigger make the measurements.
