Sun Odyssey 43 Mainsail

I would like to get a fully battened main for my 43'.

1. Can anyone tell me the correct sail size or point me in the direction of a database.

2. Its for charter use so need a robust ball bearing car system, Frederickson now owned by Ronstan. Are there any USA made equivalents?
Advice on cheapest source.

Any other advice/recommendations?

Thanks
roger

Cruising direct, FX sails, both have online sizes for many sailboats.

Otherwise, personally, I would talk to nearest sailmaker/rep to your boat, then have it measured and go with recomendation. If you main is anything like my 85 Jeanneaus main, I can increase the size by some 20%, as it was ade a bit on the small side as far as leech, and foot measurements, and I can increase the roach a bunch too. Not sure if these performance inhancments are what you want, vs just a robust sail......again, talk to a local sailmaker for best info.

I have the manual in front of me, but all I have for the "Classic Mast" is:

I 50'9"
J 15'3"
P 44'6"
E 17'
Mast Length 50"9'

I am sure that Doyle and Quantum sailmakers have the relevant information in their databases, since (in the Caribbean) they seem to be the major sailmakers for the Jeanneau boats.

Addendum - now that I think about it, all of the 43's that I've seen have had in-mast furling. That is what I have on mine, and since I don't race the loss of performance isn't relevant to me but the ease of deployment and reefing is.
