>>Hi Chuck,
>>We are in the process of buying new sails for our San Juan 23. We have
>>decided to go with North Sails for the main but are also looking for a
>>storm jib. My question is, should we buy a 46 sq ft or an 80 sq ft jib? We
>>sail mostly on Detroit Lake in Oregon and sometimes the wind really howls.
>>Do you think the 46 sq ft jib is too small? I know that Clark recommended
>>an 80 sq ft storm jib. As you can see we are really not sure which to buy.
>>Any advise, would be greatly appreciated.
>>Thanks, Jim
