What about some alternatives?
Don't know about your situation, but it Is a nice sail from La Rochelle to Panama
and then up American west coast
. Might take some time though.
the boat without sails
and mast at a lower price
; and then get yourself a nice carbon or rotating or whatever mast, and a nice set of sails
(radial cut of a more advanced material than dacron. I'd take Hydranet). Build yourself a Mahé GT! Since another mast would have a different bend, probably using the standard main would lead to a bad shape. But you might need to discuss warranty things about hull
integrity with FP.
