Just bought a 29' Watkins sloop
. In addition to the mainsail
and a hanked on 110 genoa
there is another sail on board: it has a snap shackle and 16' of plastic covered wire halyard
attached to the top of the sail, which has 23' of luff and another 2' of plastic covered wire and a snap shackle attached to the tack. The foot of the sail is 10' wide. The sail is made of the same material as the genoa
. I was told by the seller that it was a storm sail.
I owned a boat in the past that had a storm sail. That storm sail was much smaller and heavier than this one. What is this sail called.
And can I use this sail as my working jib
. I am single
handing and find that the hanked on genoa is very difficult to douse and bag. Can't afford furling gear
. And ease of passage
Thanks in advance.
