    Greetings,

    When I bought my Wayfarer 6038 there were a number of sails thrown in. A good condition main, Genoa and a Spinnaker. The more unusual sails were an old Topper main, a smaller poor condition main (think it may be an old crusing main) and what looked like a jib.

    I finally got round to hoisting the jib a few weeks ago to find out it is definitely not for a Wayfarer. A lot of flap along the foot and very poor shape gave it away!

    I plan to modify this to be my new jib. I’ve been unable to find the correct dimensions for a jib / storm jib. If anyone has the sail dimensions I would appreciate them.

    Kind regards,
    Mark.
