Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Genoa size
Kent, I was thinking about going with a 135, thinking it would be better for heavier conditions in the Caribbean. But I think I will go with a 145, if that is what is the original size. My sailmaker points out that a 145 on our boat would not be nearly the same sq. footage as a 145 on a 53 ft. sloop , thus when reefed in should be able to handle pretty strong conditions , especially if off the wind. Can you confirm that the boat came with a 145 standard ? Thanks , Pat

I had a 135% genoa made for Kristy, and wish I'd bought a 145 for light air.
