Genoa Sheet Length

thomas.kleman <no_reply@...>

Hi again- I own SM2K #422 L'ORIENT; When I purchased my boat, I replaced the original genoa sheet with one measured exactly to the old one........only later did I discover that the when the genoa is poled out the lazy line isn't long enough to pass through the opposite pole and to the winch. I'm  not currently on my boat. Does anyone know the length the genoa sheet would need to be to pass through both poles ?

We have made a very tiny loop of the core at the ens of the genua sheet, a similar lopp at the end of an other rope, so when sailing with poolen out Genua We extens the sheet by attaching a linje with a soft chakle to the sheet, several advantages No need for a New sheet, and less rope in the cockpit when sailing without poling out the Genua.

According to the original Amel specs, as posted here by Bill Rouse :
the jib sheet is 42 meters long ( 21 meters each side) which would not be long enough to rig as you describe.
