Re: New Square Top Main

Looks good... so tell us some of the details, please:

What material and weight?
Who made it?
Did you taper the battens, an if so, how did you determine the placement and amount?

We got a new Hydranet main a couple of years ago and love it... and a new genoa to be delivered this month... getting a bit excited!

Jim

Re: New Square Top Main

A new sail, a new joy!

I love square tops. Wish could have one on our present boat.
