Re: Mainsail Measurements



I am the owner and founder of Island Planet Sails. Please don't rely
on anything other than rig dimensions you take yourself unless you're
just looking for a quote. For quoting purposes the Amel website shows
the mainsail at 26 square meters. Your sail could be larger especially
if you are looking for a full batten main. I don't have the Santorini
in our database and I don't know if Amel's number is for a furling
main which is smaller than a battened sail.

Our sails are built by the same loft where Banks, Elvstrom, Doyle,
Momentum, and dozens of other international brands have their sails
assembled. Our design work is performed by one of the best in the
industry. We don't sell shapeless white triangles masquerading as
cruising sails. I'd encourage you to drop us a line.

In round numbers one of our sails built with high modulus cloth would
run around $2K USD. We have a comprehensive worksheet that I can send
you if you would like to see the details we incorporate when we build
a sail. Unlike some of the mail order Asian lofts we only use first
quality materials.

All the best,
Dave Benjamin

Hi All
Can anyone provide me with the measurements for the Mainsail of
the Santorin Sloop. I would like to see what sort of price Hong Kong
Sails come up with. We replaced our Headsail with a HK sail and it
seems to have come up to our expectations, from price, material, cut
and stitching (but come back in 5 years for an update).
