Sew it yourself! Penobscot 17 Gunter Main Sail Kit Tanbark lets you make your own mainsail. This High Peaked Gunter kit is made from 4 oz. tanbark Dacron® using the designer's plans and features three battens and one row of reef points.

Computer plotted with seaming and hem lines plotted right on the cloth, this sail kit can be made on a home sewing machine. All panels and patches are computer cut and ready for basting and sewing. Complete instructions and support from Sailrite means there is no guess work!

Construction requires a #1 Spur Die Set for lacing and intermediate reef grommets, and a #5 Spur Die Set for corner grommets, as well as leech and luff reef grommets. All other supplies to build your sail are included; all you need are scissors and a sewing machine!

Each Sail Kit comes with complete written instructions.
