How to Make a Foredeck Sail Bag from a Sailrite Kit
The kit was complete, instructions were good. The dacron reinforcing tape was difficult for my heavy duty home machine to get through. I'll try a different needle on the next one. The small one was a little too small for my Catalina 22 medium jib (135%) but will work perfectly on the O'day Daysailer. Already ordered the medium size for the Catalina 22.
Looks like all items are here. Can’t wait to get going on the kit!
Good size for small headsails
This kit is high quality, economical, and fun to make. My Catalina 22 110 jib fits in it nicely. My 150 genoa is a struggle so an F-3 or F-4 would be a better choice for sails that size, particularly if you like to flake and roll your sails.
