New sails
I made new sails, including topsails, out of artists' canvas (very cheap -- $6/yard). I think that they'll be fine in light winds, but in stronger winds, I think I'll lose the topsails, and switch to the stock dacron sails. I really like the way the new sails look, except for the edges. I sealed them with a tiny bit of superglue to prevent fraying, but I'd really like for them to have a real hem. Another project for later...
