Has anyone eve heard of trying a Getaway sail on a Wave? The mast is probably too short but I suppose it doesn't have to be completely raised. I'm sure it's way too big- 180 square feet vs. the 90 but it seems like an interesting experiment.

Big miss-match. The Getaway main is far to large and longer in the foot. Unless you mount the Getaway mast on it and add a boom. Can't see how that would work. I think the larger mast would simply flip the wave or pitch pole it too easily... let alone break the bows off.

Is there an aftermarket sail for the Wave that is bigger than the stock Wave sail?

I once put up a gataway sail on a wave. First it was hard to get it up the mast and then like it has been said there was a lot of left over sail. Helping a friend with a new used boat that he had gotten and didn't realize another friend had left his sail in the shed. Out come it would never work.
