Re: Another new sail question/rant

lol, never heard it put that way, but I like it!

Another question I ask owners who have pin stop jib car adjustments.
"if you haven't drilled 2 additional holes between each factory hole on your jib tracks, you don't need laminate sails".

Unfortunately the majority I talk to give me the speach "my sails are 15 years old and are still in great shape!" And they couldn't be more wrong, but have convinced themselves that their boat just "likes more wind" to be competitive. Or they have "too much stuff" onboard, it couldn't possibly be that they aren't good enough, or their sails are junk.

Bubble, check you emailz.
