Hi Randall,
thanks for the additional discussion on sail options. I'm having a lot of fun getting to know the boat and how she sails.
That said, my sails are shot, and that is working against me. I have only a tiny hank-on jib, a taped up Main, and see-through Mizzen. I can't tighten the leach on the main, and watched in bewilderment as the sail shook out one of its battens.
I've purchased newer sails, made for a Cal 33, which I'm going to cut to size for the Mariner. That's taking some time.
A genoa; my kingdom for a genoa.

I hear you re old sails. My main and mizzen are in fair shape, but the genoa is, well, flabby. Makes pointing a bitch. Have had to hand stich the leach twice now. Can't complain. I still go.
