Rig dimensions - where to find?

I do own a Reve de Mer, 7.25 m and my Genua got totally torne in a typhoon. I cant use the remains to give a good measurement to the sailmaker. I did try to contact the designer, Finot - but no reply.

Does anyone know where to find original rig or sail dimensions for this yacht type?
Thanks

Re: Rig dimensions - where to find?

After Mallard stopped production the design was picked up by New Japan Yacht co. Looks like they might still be around - worth a try. Or call rounds the older sail makers... those that have been around for a while might have dimensions.

Thanks, I did see them before. But the rig- and sail data are missing on that sheet.

Re: Rig dimensions - where to find?

I'd recommend measuring your rig. During production sometimes rigging dimensions change. The mast in my boat is actually shorter than the 'factory' dimensions I found online.

If you don't have a really long tape just get a line attach to a halyard, pull it up to the mast, mark it, and then take it down and measure. Take all the standard rig dimensions.

Select Your Boat at Mauri Pro Sailing

Formula Definitions

I is measured along the front of mast from the genoa halyard to the main deck. The main deck is where the deck would be if there were no deckhouse.

J is the base of the foretriangle measured along the deck from the headstay pin to the front of the mast.

P is the luff length of the mainsail, measured along the aft face of the mast from the top of the boom to the highest point that the mainsail can be hoisted, or to the black band if there is one.

E is the foot length of the mainsail, measured along the boom from the aft face of the mast to the outermost point on the boom to which the main can be pulled, or to the black band if there is one..

ISP is similar to I. It is measured from the highest spinnaker halyard to the main deck.

JSP is the length of the spinnaker pole or the distance from the forward end of the bowsprit (fully extended) to the front face of the mast.

Py and Ey, respectively, are the luff length and foot length of the mizzen of a yawl or ketch, measured in the same way as for the mainsail.

Iy is the measurement from the staysail halyard to the main deck.

Jy is the measurement from the staysail stay pin to the front face of the mast.

LP is the shortest distance between the clew and the luff of the genoa.

Re: Rig dimensions - where to find?

Thank you for all the replies. My problem to measure is that I am not at my boat and want the sail done once I am back.
But JapanBoat did sent me the measurements. All fine.
