Sail Logo''''s ,Books, Procedures etc, help!!

Big Red here, Anyone know how to register a sail logo for a boat? What about a comprehensive book for identifing boats? Any rules or designs I should avoid ( like a symbol that represents I''ve got scurvy or the like). Asast there ye scurvy knaves pipe up yer replies. I''m still wainting on yer snake stories and woh be the poor souls wot don''t contribute. Tis a right fine story for yer prize!! Big Red the pirate of Pine Island

Sail Logo''''s ,Books, Procedures etc, help!!

Sail logo''s typically originate with the boat''s manufacturer, class association, or with the racing organization (as in the case or MORC). There is no registry perse. Cruisers have often had their own logos on sails of boats with no class symbol. You used to see a lot of silkscreened logos or fabric logos stitched on in the 1960''s- thru 1980''s. Today these logos are often applied with stick back dacron and then optionally stitched around the edges making the fabrication much easier.

There is a proper proportion of logo size to luff length. If I remember correctly it is something like the height of the logo is 1/18 to 1/24 of the length of the luff. I would mock up your logo in dark paper, lay the sail out on a lawn and see how it looks on the sail.

There is a book, Maunches (sp)''Field Guide to Sailboats'' that includes a lot of Logos.
