Calling All Sail-Math Wizards
Before we get into this, I readily admit that I suck at math-and geometry too! So, I need to make sure I'm doing this right. I just purchased a Laguna 22 and was going through the sails. I have them all figured out but one--freaking traingles! It is brightly colored and appears to be dacron, and I assume it is a spinnaker, but it doesn't fit any formulas I've found. The measurement of the sail in question is as follows.
That much I have figured out, but it doesn't fit any of the spinnaker calculations for size. These are the two formulas I have:
Asymmetrical--I x J x 1.44= 24 x 8.75 x 1.44= 302.4
Symmetrical---I x J x 1.62= 24 x 8.75 x 1.62= 340.2
What I'm wondering is, did someone wrangle this off a smaller sized boat and decide to use it on mine, or do I jsut not know what the hell I am doing?
