draft position on the jib?

When someone says the draft position on the jib s/b 35% as measured along a horizontal line from the luff to the leech, is that 35% a constant along an imaginary diagonal line parallel to the luff?

No. 35% of the chord all the way up. The line intersects the head and the 35% point of the foot.

Re: draft position on the jib?

Just remember draft position can be a dynamic setting dependant on wind/wave conditions if you are trying to get the most performance out of you boat. Obviously most cruisers probably do not alter their draft position but it is important to know if performance is an issue.
