Hello Cat Owners,
I'd like to hear from those experienced and knowledgable cat sailors with 40-50ft Lagoons or similar sized cats what they would recommend for storm canvas
Im Ok with the material type (robustly constructed; heavyweight cloth; visible) and securing these sails
but uncertain and seeking advise in these areas:
- Is it recommended to have either or both a try-sail and storm jib
? Does the boat NOT behave with either of these types?
- What is your setup and has it worked for you? Which type have you used where you may have hove-to? Did you manage to find the right balance?
- What have you set up for rigging
your try-sail and storm jib
I am kitting out a L450 for ocean passaging that will include either or both of these canvas's - buying
is the easy part (!), its the application that I need to learn.
I'd ultimately like to hear from cat owners that have used such sails
in anger (or less) and can offer a constructive comment.
