MrPenquin, I will keep that in mind.

I pulled the sails today and cleaned them. They were quite dirty and something had splashed on them at one point. the pics dont show it, they looked as bad as the deck. When I re-installed them, I pulled the jib down a bit closer to the deck.

In any event, the sails came out awesome, cleaned right up. and now have no evidence of being stained or dirty. They look like new now, just some lukewarm water and a light mix of Woolite and tide stain treatment stuff. I rinsed them and air dried them with an oscillating fan.

Shes all back together now, but I have some tuning to do. I rigged her up from memory, will refer to the instruction manual to ensure that I did it correctly.

Tom
