Can someone measure the width of a wildcat mainsail, about a third of the way up, for me.
Getting some graphics done and our sail is in a container on the way to the Europeans in the Canaries [Which aren't in Europe!]

many thanks

At 1/4 height its about 2.1 metres. At half height it will be around 1.9 m. Putting graphics on sails is a pain in the butt. Good luck.

Dude- take a print of a Wildcat photo sideview and measure it. You know the mast height, right? Measure the mainsail or mast height and make a ratio to get the width.
Pretty simple.

Why don't you phone up your dealer and ask him?

Ha ha ha ha ha ahhhhhhhhhhh! That's a good one

Now if I wanted to know the length of a frickin' canoe paddle - that would be a different story

Thanks anyhow guys, i have done best guess and the graphics are being done, the guys will just have to fly out with them rolled up and make them fit the best they can when they get the boat un-packed.
