Re: Bristol 26 parts
Ok brethren ,
I have the sail dimensions of my B-26 1974 if you want the sail dimensions.
fores'l ; I=32 ft, J=10.5',for 169 ft.sq,
Mains'l ; P=27', E=11.75' for 159 ft.sq. I have the fixed long keel not the shoal drafter but the Sail Area should be pretty much the same, no bowsprit of Boomkin on her (yet anyway) displacement is like 6000 lbs at last haul-out on travel-lift scale.
total sail area = 327 ft.sq. ; Sail area to displacement is like 16:1, D:L = 245,
(the forestay is 33.7 ft. long. ) i do not have the roller furling on her , it was way too troublesome hanked on foresal' can be changed out in a wind just dandy , so I prefer the safety of hanked on to the furler that liked to get jammed up just when I needed to reduce sail in a bad windstorm ,eh? Ok mates, then good luck on ya , eh ?
