Mainsail Dimensions

Phil Thomas1 says:

Hi All

I have been given a spare mainsail (nice start to the new year, huh?) which the giver assures me will fit the Dawn Tredder. I am not one to spurn a gift freely given but does anyone have to hand the dimensions for an Achilles 24 Mainsail so I can check before commencing replacement? The gift seems in better condition than my current one but is there anything in particular I should watch out for?

Hope someone can help. Thanks

Not long till spring (sigh)

Just back from a great weekend; got a good deal of jobs done on the boat, but plenty still to do.

A lovely walk this morning round the headland near Padstow, very spring-like.

Ron, we have decided there isn't time to do the roof properly before the beginning of the season now. It'll wait till next year, and we can take our time.
Many thanks
