New Sails - Part 4
|The topping lift was changed out to a new Spectra line--this required a |
trip to the top of the mast. I'm glad one of the guys from
Quantum was the one over 50 feet up in the air.
|The head of the mainsail is reinforced quite heavily. |
(The top corner of the sail is called the "head.")
|The clew of the mainsail is shown above. The line in the background is called |
a leach line and it can be used to put more curvature
in the leach (aft edge) of the sail.
|The new mainsail is flaked very neatly on the boom.|
