It's great reading all the opinions out there.
I got an email
today and they will be giving me a better deal than they had originally quoted me for the ASY kit. Since I have lots of time off at the end of the month, I think I might like to tackle this project
Even though I will be building the kit, I will still be on the lookout for a used headsail though
From reading all of your comments I am starting to change my mind about even getting a 150% at all (well for the time being anyway). It sounds like a 135% might be a better option offering more versatility.
Now, lots of you talk about a high cut clew. When I am looking at used sails
how do I know when they are cut high or not?
I saw a Yankee cut sail that was in perfect shape and would concider buying
but I think that the clew would be a little high for my boat
Luff 51' 6" leech 37" foot 24
most of the other sails with this luff size have a leech in the range of 47' to 50' (+/- 2' in the foot)
Once again, thanks for the great relplies, excelent info!!
