Gaff Schooner Sails For Serious Cruising

Top quality, serious ocean going sails for a gaff schooner made by Dave Bierig of Erie, Pennsylvania, well known for making sails for tall ships including the brig Niagara. Nine ounce Contender, triple stitched and heavily reinforced. The main, foresail and forestaysail have battened leeches. High peaked main.



These are sails built for going around the world the hard way and standing up to anything. They were put on the boat in 2001 and have been kept scrupulously covered. They are in flawless condition aside from a bit of minor staining and have many, many more miles and years in them. None of the sails has ever required a repair, not so much as a single stitch.

I am converting to Chinese rig. These sails are coming off a steel Colvin schooner 41 on deck, 126 beam, 5 draft, loaded displacement 30,000 lb. They would be suitable for any similar sized vessel. Total fore and aft area is 846 square feet. Welded aluminum booms, gaffs, saddles and goosenecks to fit these sails are available.

SAIL DIMENSIONS
Main: luff 234, leech 333, head 128, foot 187, area 394 sq. ft., sewn reef points at 66 and 130. Foresail: luff 213, leech 264, head 102, foot 108, area 223 sq. ft., sewn reef points at 50 and 100. Forestaysail: luff 244, leech 219, foot 84, area 91 sq. ft., sewn reef points at 40, jackline. Jib: luff 307, leech 278, foot 1111, area 138 sq. ft.

$4250.
