Sail specs and loads

New year, new sails? Check out the original sail and load specs below.
Rumor has it that the Express 37 genoa tracks were built for dacron sails. When the new high-tech kevlar and carbon sails came out their lack of stretch developed higher shock loads causing problems. Older boats had to be beefed up to handle these forces.
Always a good idea to check your genoa track fittings as these are prone to leaks!

Thanks again to Mark H. on Epiphany for the pictures.
