Basically, you can print out your sail numbers on computer, and lay the sails over the printed numbers. Then just use a permanent Sharpie marker (or similar) and trace over the numbers. Outline with a fine point and then fill in with a thick/flat point. Might have to go over twice to get the black opaque so you can't see marker strokes. Remember to keep starboard side numbers higher than port side.

You can use colors, but some don't seem to look good with light behind them.

If you make a mistake or touch where you didn't want to., a cotton ball with a bit of alcohol will usually remove the marker with a bit of light rubbing.

Sails below are some that I did for my own F2-60.

Good to know. Looks like I will need to learn how to make sails or figure out some white numbers. Either way, I'll have to wait for sail numbers first.

Anyone still using these? I bought one a couple of weeks ago and have just finished running silicon all over the potential leak holes. Thanks to this forum.

I do just don't get a lot of chances to sail lately. Although last time I was out I forgot the drain plugs.i started wondering why it looked like it had a dirty diaper. Lol.

I have one and sail it occasionally. I made a new (single panel) main sail because I was tired of looking at the terrible sail shape and silly graphics of the stock sail. They are fun boats if you accept their limitations and have some sort of rescue system ready because they can and do capsize/pitchpole.

Would be great if you owners would register your boats so we develop an email address list and see if we can get a multihull association off the ground. Please include the size of multi, cat or tri, with or without foils.

For the 65M class, a registration effort was already started by RCSAILS.COM
