Dacron mainsail, six (6) full length battens, three (3) reefs. Measurements:
Luff 40 ft 2-1/2 in
Foot 15 ft 10 in (loose-footed)
Leech 42 ft 6-1/2 in (although not sure this matters on a mainsail)
INCLUDED ARE ALL OF THE BATTENS. The luff has webbing loops - at each of the batten holders - that attached to mast cars.
Made in 2002 by Halsey Lidgard, Australia for a 33 ft Seawind 1000 catamaran. Boat was commissioned in 2003. I purchased the boat in November 2006 out of a charter fleet. The attached pictures were taken during the sea trial in Nov 2006. The two Boatpix proofs were taken in Sept 2007 - one of the last times the sails were used. The other measurement pictures were taken today.
At the beginning of 2008, I replaced these stock sails with larger, Pentex-material sails. (After 15 years of racing high-performance trimarans, the dacron just didn't have the shape that I wanted!) The dacron sails were removed, flaked and rolled correctly and placed in the replacement sail bags, and stored in my dry garage since. The sails are clean, and don't have any mold or tears, or stains. The pictures are not so good, as the light reflecting off of the sails makes for dark picture. But look at the Sailing 3 picture and you can see they are bright white. There is one small patch - shown in the picture ? which has been on there since I purchased the boat Plus the batten pockets had some wear at one point so I had Quantum Sails (Kemah, Texas) reinforce the areas where the pockets rub on the shrouds. Reinforcement is heavy clear material (their choice for longevity).
Local pickup (Houston, Texas) is preferred, as the battens would be very expensive to ship. (They are stiff, and do not roll up.) If you want just the sail, I could ship it. But it probably weighs over 100 lbs, excluding any packaging. I will weigh it and report. I also have a few other pictures we took today doing the measurements that I can send. Just PM me for those.
PRICE: $450 for the mainsail INCLUDING the battens. Shipping not included. No discount if you don't want the battens. I?ve searched the internet sites for prices on used mainsails, and priced this main to sell. It is not a junk sail.
