    Cleaning Sails

    This thread was archived, so I'm starting a new one. I'm cleaning my dacron jib, and there are some dark gray streaks that seem to be from air pollution. I've tried dish soap with bleach, Shout, and Goo Gone. The stains are better, but not gone. Any suggestions on what to try?
  2. First off yes I’m a noob to all things sailing except loving everything about it...but in practice I’m a noob. Sorry if I say things wrong or anything else. I acquired a fiberglass Hull Thistle for free which should always be a bit of a red flag but I saw the word sailboat and I became the new proud owner of a horribly neglected boat...long story short I think the cost to repair her is well beyond what she would be worth...that being said she did come with two sets of sails one is main and job made by Boston and the other is a main and jib made by Van Zandt. All the sails were in bags and stored indoors so they are in pretty good shape and I was going to try and sell them but I can’t find much information about either or what is fair to ask for them so I am reaching out for the wisdom of you all....thanks in advance...hmmm...unless nobody helps then I guess...no thanks...stay upbeat...thanks again in advance. Dale
  3. So, Anyone know much about how the North sails Salesmen operate. What sort of Commissions are they on?. What about discounts such as winter Discounts. You go into the North Website and it rarely tells when there is a discount in play or when it ends. Is there a situation that some sales guys in particular countries do not pass on discounts that other countries offer as a norm. Do the sales guys cut their commissions for better programmes . Anyone got any insight .
  4. I'm Emily aboard SV Hard A Lee, a 25 foot Cape Dory cruising Florida and the Caribbean. We just completed our first Gulf crossing and we found that of course we need more reef points. I'll be putting them in myself, so I spent today figuring out where best to put them. I thought y'all might enjoy my walkthrough of the math involved. Calculating sail area for balanced reefing We currently have one mainsail (Am=126.5 sqft), one 150% genoa (Ag=188 sqft), and one 80% working jib (Aj=100 sqft). The mainsail has one 75% reef point (Am1=95 sqft) and we have rolled it in an emergency to approximately 50% (Am2=63 sq ft). We have found that we get the best balance in the following ways: Conditions main jib ratio of areas main area as a percentage of jib area Light wind full main 150% genny Am/Ag = 126.5/188 67% Some gusts reefed main 150% genny Am1/Ag = 95/188 50% Gusty rolled main 80% working jib Am2/Aj = 63/100 63% We estimate, therefore, that our reef points should allow us to keep the main area at 60% of jib area. For a 30% storm jib (As=37.5 sqft), we will then want a mainsail area of 60% of 37.5 sqft = 22.5 sqft or 18%. Calculating positioning of reef points in the mainsail The main can be treated as a right triangle with height Y and length X. Area, A = XY/2. For our sail with X=11 and Y=23, the ratio X/Y = .48 and accordingly X = .48Y Therefore, A = 4.16y² and Y = 2.04√A We can now fill in the chart below. Bolded values are known, and the rest are calculated: % area area (A) height (Y) length (X) resultant necessary jib area given that Amain = .6Ajib 100 126.5 23 11 188 (150% genny) 75 95 20 9.6 142 (but we know our 150% genny works fine here) 50 63.25 16.25 7.8 94 (working jib) 18 22.5 9.75 4.68 37.5 (30% jib) With these values known, I can simply mark the main at each calculated Y, measuring from the head cringle down. The calculated X is approximate and will be used to install new jiffy reefing tackle on the boom. Calculating positioning of reef points in the jib Instead of building a new 30% jib, we will install reef points in our working jib. It is a scalene triangle with sides 23, 21, and 9.5 ft. If we set the base X as the longest side, its height H can be calculated using Heron’s formula (beyond the scope of this post). In our case, H = 8.67. Because we plan to maintain the clew, head, and tack angles, each side will change proportionately, as will H. We therefore find that X2=√(2X1A2/H1), where A1, X1, and H1 refer to the original area, base, and height and A2 and X2 refer to the new desired area and height. Plugging in the values of X1 and H1, we find an axiomatic equation describing our jib proportions: A = .19X² and X = 2.3√A Now to find the new lengths of the other sides, which I’ll call Y and Z in order descending by relative length, the following equations can be used: X = 2.33Z and Z = .41X Y = .91X and X = 1.1Y Z = .45Y and Y = 2.22Z And we can fill in our table: % area area (A) X Y Z 80 100 23 21 9.5 30 37.5 14.1 12.8 5.75 X and Y will be measured from the head, and Z will be used to check the other measurements for accuracy. Do you see errors with my math or logic? I've never altered a sail before and would love feedback!
  5. I need a new Jib (100-106%) for my 30 foot boat. Currently on hanks, I later plan to install a jib furler, possibly next year (Thinking Profurl C290). Now just need a Jib on hanks. Can I have a Jib made this year be re-cut to fit the furler system? Anyone has this experience? Will the sail fit very poorly if not cut outright for a furling system? Sailmakers say it can be done, but they don't commit one way or another on quality of outcome. Help much appreciated.

    Spinnaker cloth Airx v Superkote

    Hi I'm getting quotes for a medium runner (S2) for my Olson 29 (<4000 pound boat). Different sailmakers are quoting either Airx 500, Airx 700 or Superkote 60. My understanding is that Airx500 is really .75oz, Airx 700 is 1.3oz and Superkote is somewhere in between. Any active sailmakers/experts willing to chime in on pros and cons to each suggestion? Thanks
  7. I got a good asym when I bought s few used sails for my boat. Still crinkly looks good. The luff is too long by around 5 feet due to the donor boat using a bowspirit And I do not. Right now it is at bacons for sale but if nobody buys it I was thinking it might be worthwhile to cut to fit? I read somewhere that cutting down spinnakers is easier than with s jib. If it sells by next year I will just buy another sail but assyms seem hard to find used. My luff is about 50 feet.
  8. I'm purchasing my first sail and have found what seems to be a great sail but the clew is 6.1 feet above the tack, which itself may(?) be on a pendant to get it above the bowsprit! This would be a heavier weather jib at 94% with 8oz dacron and an additional reef, primarily to be used within SF bay and outside the Golden Gate in the future. The additional visibility sounds great but this sure seems high, it would be nearly 3 ft above my boom if my calculations are correct. For lighter winds I already have a 150% genoa. I'm curious to get opinions on if this is just ridiculously high or if that height would be advisable for high visibility and high wind applications. FYI the dimensions are: Luff: 41' 1" Leech: 33' Foot: 18'
  9. I have had my J27 #149 for 28 years. Bought lots of sails, but none in a while. Previous sailmakers no longer around. Anybody know of any sailmakers that know the J27? Maybe Buffalo/Toronto area or the upcoming New Orleans fleet? Perhaps a group buy?

    Wooden Mast & rigging

    Hey all, I have a Mower-style Alpha Dory complete hull just need to get mast, spars, rigging and sails. Can anyone recommend a shop or shops in the Chicago area or even Southern Michigan area? This is an 18'6" boat that is most traditionally gaff rigged. Thanks all! BTW she's also for sale if somebody wants to finish they way they want it.
