Little help with my Proboat Sanibel

While catting around my local hobby shop I found a NOS Proboat Sanibel on the clearance rack. I have wanted a sail boat for awhile, the price was right, so I snagged the kit. I built a new rudder, rigged her up and hit the pond. Really like the boat but have a few questions: I really do not like the sails, any recommendations? The clips keep coming off the main sail, anyone have a fix? What does 36-600 mean??

Very happy with my first sail boat. Thinking about the PB Serenity next. Thoughts?
Thanks, Chad

Can't help about replacement sails for a Sanibel, but 36-600 is a sailboat class referring to 36 inch long hull and 600 square inches of sail area. I would say that perhaps with a few simple modifications to the stock sails they might not be so bad.

For sails you may want to contact Carr Sails to see if he can help.
