Light air sail for Great Dane 28
I am in need of a large light air sail. My boat is a Great Dane 28 full keel relatively heavy displacement, 9000 pounds. She handles heavy air great but needs help in 5 to 10 knots of wind.
I recently visited with a sail maker and he suggested a 150 genoa (280 sq ft) made up with 1 and 1/2 oz nylon. I was thinking of something like a drifter.
I would like any input you folks have. Thanks
