Can you tell the difference between a full and flat main sail? I have a new main sail which came with the boat the previous owner thinks it is flat, but when it is on the boat looks very full. Its a P&B Dacron main. I have looked for labels etc on the sail bag but found nothing.

Are there any obvious differences in the measurements of full and flat mainsails? I know small and large spinnakers differ, but don't have the experience of measuring different types of mains.

It will also depend on your rig set-up and how far on you pull controls etc. - do you have anything to compare it to?

When I bought 14574 the previous owner included what he said was a Flat P&B Mylar mainsail. He was right, it looks very flat when on the boat even before comparing it to the latest P&B cut main that I have subsequently purchased. The differences are very clear to see.

Dale,
give P&B a ring they may be able to tell you from your sail no and date of measurement or a measurement on the sail may differ.
