Sleeve would then be added out of sailcloth and head cut down and altered to suit. Foot is slightly shorter than standard tiki wingsail, but short leech batterns in the Etchels jib would help compensate for lost area.Have drawn it to…See More

"Thanks for the info guys. Do you know if the price Rolly Tasker give you include duty tax and whatnot?  The sailrite kits look good too. Do you need an industrial sewing machine for them? What about the grommets for reefing positions? Cheers"

HI Guy,Paint city for the altex range of paints,the flat and gloss whites are a pleasure to roll on.If you decide to use a colour they can be trickier and you will need to tip off the paint with a broad soft brush,otherwise you get little bubbles appearing in the paint.

cheers paul
