Must visit more often!

I haven't been on here for a while but there's been some good threads, Nick's mast build being one of them! I've got lots of reading and catching up to do.

Whilst I'm here, has anyone in the UK got an old genoa with luff tape? I'm looking to fit roller reefing but my sails are hanks, I'm looking to get the no2 converted but if I can find a ready done sail that might be better.

It does feel a little under used. Facebook groups seem to have taken over. Not much good if you don't like fb.

It doesn't look too bad a job to alter a sail, I have thought before about making an adaptor, make a thin piece of sail with eyelets in for your hanks. run that up the groove, and attach your sails to it.
Not sure how it would furl though.
