Stus-List sail question

Thanks for all the info so far.

Racing is not an issue for this sail. Neither is real light air, I can motor, use the spinnaker, or drag out one of my 170 genoas. I have a Mylar and light Dacron 170 that both have hardly been used.

I am thinking smaller instead of bigger because when the wind is really kicking I want to roll in to around 100% and still have a good shape.

I have looked for used sails for years now and kind of given up on that. Unless the boat sinks, no one is giving up a good furling jib. If you want a racing sail or an old hank-on sail, plenty of those around. It looks like I will need to go new for this.

Hi Joe, 

     If racing, take a look at where the PHRF break takes place.  For my boat the break takes place between 142% and 143%.  I chose 142% and that has worked well for me when I downsized from 150%

My furling jib is utterly beat. I think a bedsheet would have more shape. 

So what size say you all for a replacement? I am thinking going a little small, say 130%, and flying the chute asym style for light air off the wind.
