Re: Main sail

Sorry I can't help with your specific questions but I hope you'll get a response from an owner soon.
You might try a post on the multihull forum threads.
kind regards,

Re: Main sail

Even if you get the dimensions from another boat, you will be making a grave mistake if you do not have a sailmaker personally come to the boat, take exact measurements and discuss your needs and usage. There are far too many variables among identical boats. There are many good sail lofts in the Eastern Carib.

Re: Main sail

Hi Cool Cat,
Looks like my first post did not go through.
I own a Belize 43 and make sails for multihulls. We have 6 designs for these boats and have designed and built everything from cross cut dacron mains to triradial dacron and Hydra Net mains. I have been recommending adding an extra batten making this a 7 full batten sail rather than the 6 full battens as the stock sails have. These sails do not have slides between the battens. The extra slide helps to supplot the luff better and the extra batten helps to support additional roach in the upper leech that we have been offering. This improves performance over the stock mains.
Our sail loft is in St. Petersburg, Florida and we ship through out the Caribbean. Web site is
