RE: Steading Sails / Get home propulsion
Wow, Mark, that is really a sweet looking boat.* It has come together beautifully.
You said "unfurled" for the sails.* Did you go with furlers?* Very smart if you did, but that shows a real committment.** Are you going to ship or bring her over on her bottom?* I hope the latter, as I would be great fun to follow the trip.* You could photo shop a picture of a hurricane in the background over yourself tied to the mast!* I'll show you how to use Photoshop for the purpose! (you probably know that Delfin is actually a 28 foot Reinell that I have Photoshopped...)
I'm guessing that as small as they may appear, on a broad reach those sails will be worth 2 knots under typical conditions, which will save a whole lot of fuel.
Very nicely done!
