Ahoy Gang,
Just my $.02 depreciated cents.
Satori's old saiils are in the hands of the sailmaker who actually built the sails for Ray Leonard in the late '80's. Hunter and Gambrell Sailmakers in Maine, Brad Hunter has Ray's old orders and Satori's sails. He is adding and repairing the old sails at this time. The main, I am quite sure is shortened about 12" or so at the foot. It is an attached foot, not loose footed. Brad told me that he and Ray spent a lot of time "tweeking" Satori's sails. So, he has my business for the new order. They are battenless. Satori had two reefs in the main and one in the stays'l. The new sails will be 3 reefs in main, 2 in stays'l. Let me say this: I don't have a lot of experience, but I could not believe how well the sails set in our little forty mile coastal excursion against a 25 knot headwind. Spent the night out hove to, no problem. Don't get me wrong, a lot of engine time.
Good luck on your search.
Randy K.
