Genoa 150

Hi Everybody I am hoping someone will be able to help me here.
I would like to know if possible what size the foot would be ( approx ) for a Genoa sail called a 150 for a 26 foot yacht.

I can work out the other sizes if I knew the foot size. Just the foot length would be enough please.
Or could it be just about half the boats length.

You might want to try sail plan measurements in google. The following link among several describes terminology -- LP is the measurement that corresponds to the percent.

Sail Measurement Assistance

Knowing a few other dimensions and trigonometry should let you calculate the foot. Alternatively, you might be able to find your boat and corresponding dimensions in the following or similar databases:

Mac
The size/ % of a jib or genny is based on the distance from the forstay to the mast "j" + (in your case half that distance 50%) .
