Re: make a gale sail

We carry a storm jib with sleeve.
I believe I saved about $1500.00 having my local loft make it versus the ATN Gale Sail. Have you ever priced one of those things? Unbelievable.
Having said that, I have a huge fear of trying to rig it and my thought process has always been, make sure it is up and ready to go long before the stuff hits.
I really can't see breaking it out, I would rather roll up the jenny to the second mark or beyond if needed. I will deal with the bad sail shape.
