Re: Alternatives to Sailrite?

I've done a leech repair on this sail, it wasn't all that hard to do, but the sail is now past that and needs replacing.
If I'm understanding you, getting a sail with the correct luff means you don't have to mess with the headboard - you just recut the leach so that the foot is the correct length, install leech tape and a leech line, redo the batten pockets, etc.? Isn't the luff/foot angle a de facto 90°, so that all you have to do is cut from the head to the appropriate length on the foot - meaning the leech will automatically be the right length?
