Hi all,
I am in the process of installing a selftacker on my Taipan 4.9 and was wondering if anyone had a Jib for sale that might work.

Also if anyone had one made would they still have the measurements used.

Thanks

Aidan

Make sure the distance from the front hull tangs to the main beam are the same between the two boats-

Also, the blade jib tacks to the spin pole, not to the bridle forestay connection.
