Hi all, ive bought a second hand full set of PB sails, and need to check that the black bands on mast and boom aren't different. The set where made in 2005 and are kevlar. Cheers
Black band readings
What matters is what is on your certificate if your sails do not fit within those measurements then you need a partial remeasurement to bring your new/old sails into legallity, suggest you consult one of the measurers in the year book, bound to be one in your area you should not need a full measurer, good luck.
standard measurement is a 5720 luff and a 2503ish foot. There are variations, but this is almost certainly what you're P&B will be
As a restricted development class does the MR have a standard set of measurements? A universally adopted set (from current experience with current boats) maybe demonstrating a risk averse time maybe?
or perhaps that there is a definate sweet point regarding rig height and sail area?
quite a wide variety of sali sizes still around.
