Looks like your get in some sailing time. Fantastic.

I think the post you are refering to was under buds/ w32 drifter.

The item I originaly presented as a possible issue was the leach being only 31' the 43.8 should have fit or almost fit.

what is the leach on your sail? and where are your turning blocks placed?

Also if you look back to the post in question, I did not state that I do use my drifter in low winds on everything from a reach to a dead down wind. I keep the wind speed across it at less than 8Kts.

It looks like you got a good deal on your sail as it appears like some of the reinforcing patchs are reversed at the tack area (It looks like the cut was corect but the colors are off, luft to foot)
and I know how much they charge for a new sail Ugh! On the other hand if they discounted it then you are a luck man, getting all of the sail for a portion of the price.

In any case May the fair winds continue to blow you way.
