Topic : Wanted - Tall rig Dacron main for club racing

I've recently bought a vintage Merlin and I'm looking to buy a reasonable condition Dacron main for a tall rig. Anyone have one that they might be willing to part with? I'm based at Thames Sailing Club. Thanks in advance! Ben

You probably need to specify the rig height, measured between sheerline & upper band on the mast. In those days rigs were referred to by this measurement in feet, to the nearest 6 inches, so rigs were  21', 21'6", 22' etc. Tolerance on lower band height w.r.t. sheerline was smaller then, so practically speaking the measurement above determines the luff length. Hope this helps.

Hi Ben, you need a sail with a 618cm luff for your mast.  All the best, Tim

Thanks Tim. I was just about to get the tape out. You’ve saved me a job!
