Re: Polytarp Sails.
- Thanks Dan and John. Very helpful info.
I already have two white polytarps. One 20 x 20 and the other 20 x 28'
but they are not as heavy as Dave now uses - only 3.5 oz supposedly. So
thinking battens might add strength at reef points and then lazy jacks
for quick reefing. Another reason is my daughter-in-law is from Beijing
and she wants a junk sail:-)

to build a lug main & mizzen for Hapscut or similar sized boat. It comes
with a lug rope. I have to say the kit was pretty impressive since it
has everything you need to build a "taped only" sail and cost about $132
including shipping. It took me about about 12 hours to cut, sew and rig
