Hello, I was given a nice kevlar reinforced main from a F27 that has a lot of nice material left. I would like to make a sail for my sunfish with it (lateen rig). I am looking for plans and tips on accomplishing that project. I do not need the sail to be class legal. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Have fun!!!
