sails for manta19
peter booker - Fri 11 Aug 2006 13:27:19 does anyone out there have any spare sails they wish to sell? Failing that, can anyone advise the original sail sizes supplied ie luff, leech and foot measurements please.
isobel - Wed 16 Aug 2006 11:26:26 Hi, Peter. I don't have accurate measurements, but I do have the original sail areas, if that's any help. The main and no. 1 genoa were supplied as standard, but you could also get a working jib, no.2 genoa and spinnaker as extras.
Main: 59 sq.ft (5.48 sq.m)
No. 1 genoa: 80 sq.ft (7.40 sq.m)
No. 2 genoa: 97 sq.ft (9.00 sq.m)
Working jib: 57.5 sq.ft (5.34 sq.m)
Spinnaker: 183.0 sq.ft (17 sq.m)

Many thanks for the details of all the original sails. I am still looking so if anyone out there has one or two to spare, please drop me a line.
I have recovered my boat from Whitehaven yesterday and she now sits in my drive in Cheshire awaiting a bit of tlc. First job is the window seals which I see others have tackled already.
Once again thanks for the info.
