Both 514 sq ft sails for Avelinda were made by Lee Sails in Hong Kong and were very reasonable in price. They were made from 6.8 oz Tanbark and the workmanshipifida2000

Yes. 5oz dacron is equivalent to 170/200gsm polytarp. My 210 ft2 sails are made from 5oz dacron. Paul McKay On 4 Mar 2015, at 14:31, wa4chq_rp@...email@example.com
pertaining to the Junk Rig, I've realized that there is not a lot of
information out there. This list has been created to discuss the design
building and sailing of the Chinese Junk Rig. List members will also be able to
post relevant articles and pictures.
Note: The Files and Photos sections have been re-opened for new submissions. Yahoo! have increased the limits on Files and Photos so that we now have
enough space to use them again. The overflow group, junkrig2, still exists. See
target="_blank" href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/junkrig2/"> Junkrig2.
The feature photo shows the front cover of the newly re-published "Practical Junk Rig" by Blondie Hasler
and Jock McLeod. This seminal work on rigging western boats with Chinese junk rigged sails has been
out of print for several years. It is now being published in the UK by Adlard Coles Nautical and in the US by Tiller Books.
Photo contributions of new or old junks are always welcome.
