Helms 25

I have a helms 25 and am in need of specs for the original sails. Anyone know dimensions for a main and jib.

Also, my rudder... bottom half seems good, two pieces that sandwich it above are some kind of fiberboard and not aluminum (I think they should be). Is this original?

Those numbers will have little bearing on the actual dimensions of your boat. They are the generally assumed measurement for your boat for the purpose of generating racing rating. In reality there are pretty big variations from one individual boat of a given model and another.

If you are planning to have new sails made, you should really have the sailmaker measure your particular boat.
