Hi All, in cleaning out the garage attic at the cottage, I found a sail that was left behind by the previous owner. It surprised me to find that they were in like new condition.

They have about a 23.5' luff and a 6' 8" foot. There is an insignia (class designator?) on the sail that looks like the Alpha symbol with a small 1 just left of it, and a small 5 just right of it. I was thinking Glasstron Alpha 15, but the mast on that was way too short.

Any ideas?

Bummer, I was afraid of that. I will try the link again from my photo account.
Thanks,

Just heard back from Skip Elliott, the sails maker. He says they are from a mid 70's AlphaCat 15. Less than 100 made in South California. I wonder how one made it to Michigan.

It has a luff rope, I wonder if I can use it boomless on my H16?
