RE: SJ23 Jib




Thanks very much Doug. I ordered a 135% 5.5 oz. Furling (CDI) jib from Gene
Adams this morning.

Carl,

Just returned home to your emails.  Bob and I had a good discussion 
about the merits of a 135 versus a 150 last night over campfire beers.  
Without question, a 135 is a much more versatile sail.  It keeps you at 
optimum speed/trim in a much broader range of wind conditions.
