Re: New Genoa sail for Amel 54

There shouldn't be a foam luff on the mail, as Danny says, it wouldn't fit inside the mast, there's barel;y enough room for the plain sail when it's wound into the mast. The shape issue with the main is not nearly as bad as the genoa issue as the main is wound around a vertical rod in the mast. The genoa suffers because it's on a stay which sags more and more as the wind gets up and on an SM there is no backstay tension adjustment which would help.
