Thanks for all the comments! I'll post a few more details of this used sail.
Sail; Luff 48', foot 13' 7"
Used Sail; Luff 46' 4' Foot 13"
So it would be slightly smaller, not sure how much that would affect performance.
Used Sail:FULL BATTENED MAIN, 8.4 OZ DACRON BY MACK. 7/8" FLAT NYLON INTERNAL SLIDES WEBBED TO GROMMETS ON COVERED ROPE
LUFF. ADJUSTABLE RUTGERSON FULL BATTENED END FITTINGS WITH 7/8" FLAT INTERNAL SLIDE CARS. CUNNINGHAM CRINGLE. 1" TACK SETBACK. 1" TACK SETUP. LEECH LINE. ROWS OF REEFS
UP 5' 0" AND 11' 3". PEEL OFF NUMBERS. TAKES 4 FULL LENGTH BATTENS, INCLUDED. MODERATE/HEAVY SOIL. GOOD+ 48 lbs.
Moderate/Heavy sloil: not sure how hard that would be to take out, I will have to see it first
I would like to replace my current
sail because it seems that the draft
is quite aft and I can only do so much to try and bring it to the right spot (could be my technique but the sail is 1985 and I assume it's blown out)
As far as the stack height, I don't think it will be much higher than current because of the bat car/nylon slides combo. On the downside might prove a bit difficult to hoist.
I remember reading something a while ago that a full batten sail will hold it's shape for most of it's life. True?
I am looking for all the benefits of a full bat sail and this one will have it. What I am curious to know is if it will give me better performance than my current blown out sail.
Thanks again!!!, I've posted several times on this forum while I was selecting a new genoa
and I'm glad I did because with your help, I am very satisfied with what I got
I attached a pic of the A-spinnaker that I built with a sailrite
