Re: Genoa measuring, help please.
If virtually means within 20%, then yes, you are correct. It depends on the angle of the foot to the luff and the angle of the forestay.
I check filter as a first gauge, but still do the actual LP calc to check percentage overlap. I also check square feet if the sail that I'm looking at doesn't use the full luff.
