I started in the Caribbean
with an ex-charter boat
and the sails were very
well used by charters and the tropical sun.
Just the 2 sails, slab main and furling genoa.
So after aprox 30,000nms...
I still have the Genoa on and I think the sail is still fine but the UV cloth needs to go. Or if I get a deal I will get a whole new sail.
The main sail always had UV damage which I had first repaired before we left the Caribbean
. Its taken quite a LARGE ammunt of contact glue and sticky sail cloth!
I had always wanted to have Rolly Tasker make me a new one
So I took the old main to him and we streached it out and measured it up. Because we were there in Thailand
it was, of course, cheaper.
At this stage I could quite easily tear the sail with 2 fingers.
I kept the old main up going accross the Indian Ocean
and Red Sea because theres no use destroying a new sail in the Red Sea!
40NM from Turkey
the mainsail departed in a 40+kt bit of weather
Putting the new main up in Turkey
was wonderful and we marveled at how easy to rip the old main was... I took some video but dont have the MBs to upload it. It was just like tissue paper.
But it had lasted well over 20,000 miles.
So my thoughts are you are fine with what you have got. I don't like having the boat made smaller with excess sails so you can look carefully at what you want to take.
Whats on the masts/stays are fine. Genniker is good.
2 furling Gennys? Why not just the No1?
Can you put up a storm jib
in a storm? ie take the furling genoa off and then up the stormy? I couldn't. So I probably wouldnt take one.
You could keep the Genny no2 to be sent to you if you have some disaster you can't repair
As a casual observation there are very few boats I remember with extra sails. One guy who departed this am has a few lashed to the deck
. Some do, not many. Of course many will say most people take many spares.
