He cpuld be measuring JP";but I don;t think that number wou;d be that far off from "J". Huge diff there; so I don;t know what it'll be. The 110 for a Starwind 27 might be nearer to my "j" dim. Pryde doesn't list sizes unless you request a quote. If its actually 16 feet, it'd be near to a 145% genny! Hence the "reefing" question. I'm not sure I'd be OK learning with that much cloth ahead But for a little better than a C-note, it's all good
Bacons' had a few near to 100-110% but hank-ons in my price range were shot and had huge repairs..if done at all. "As-new" or better grade used are close to 70% of the price of new. More'n I wanna spend ta learn on! A 100%'r is fine w/me. I need ta go slow till I learn ta go fast!
This sounds like a sail that is/was for sale on CL near me, it was advertised as 110% but not on any boat he had. If it is I bought a drifter from hime that fit my Alberg 30. Says it was from a Starwind 27. Fit my Alberg almost perfect. the sail I bought was as described.
