Re: downwind sail for PSC31
I think we've ditched the idea of a furling asymmetric, though that was in my original post. Someone told me that to add a third furler up front, you have to move the other two furling units back in addition to extending the bowsprit, which I don't even have at the moment.
is misguiding you...
It is true that to use a asymmetric furler you need some room between the tack point for the asymmetric and the headstay (in front of the foremost stay/ furler). So if your headstay is terminated at the end of the boat (bowsprit/stem) you need add or extend the bowsprit.
But moving the existing ones - why?
