      Got her wet.

      I ended up cutting the sail, as
      the mast has a 6" natural bend in
      it, by flexing the mast another 6",
      and then tracing the shape on
      the sail cloth. The luff was
      trimmed 2" and the foot 1".

      In a light wind [all I had today]
      the sail has a nice full shape.

      On one of only a few days that you
      can launch from the beach near my house,
      through the nearly non-existant surf, I
      went sailing today. It was great.

      Now, I want the next boat.

      Which is the longer version of Teal,
      say 16 feet long? Is that Surf?
      Or is that Windsprint?
