  1. Great website. I’m up on SF Bay and you just showed me how I could chronicle the adventures of sailing my Santana in and around here. Would love to have the actual dimensions of your main and genoa because I can’t seem to get these dimensions anywhere on the web. Is 110% the smallest working size for these boats or were they even larger? I’ve been told that the genoas do so much of the work on these boats that when the wind starts to pick up and you want to reef something, start with the main first. I’ve had mine for 4 yrs now and LOVE her. Possible trip out to Hawaii this October…on a very tight budget,BTW. Love your Gallery, but how come no interior shots? I like the sliding(?) nav shelf and the folding table. Did you make these? How are they held down?
    Happy sailing,

  2. Glad to have found your website, and that it contains some useful and interesting information.
