Does anyone have the measurements of the Hobie Jib sails for the Hobie 14, 16 and Wave?

Foot, Luff and Leach would be great thanks.

Not dimensions we have in literature or on the site, so unless someone has them measured... doubtful. What's the purpose? Since the sails are governed by class rules... they have to come from Hobie Factory patterns, there is no purpose for these dimensions typically.

I'm looking to see if any of them would be a suitable size to test out as an add-on jib on my Adventure Island. I have no idea if the ones I've seen advertised are too big or not.
