In-Boom Furling Main - Woven Polyester, Dacron AP
This in-boom furling mainsail is made from a solid woven polyester cloth, often with 2-ply in the leech or the woven dyneema (Hydra net) keeping the nice white look for years and years to come. The cross-cut sail design is a widely used design that is a very price conscious choice. The horizontal full battens help keep the shape, and make sure the furling in to the boom runs without problems. The lowest battens are also working as reefing point as they stretch out the reefed down mainsail.
The woven polyester used for our SOLANO segment comes in different qualities with high tenacity fibers that resist long term loads. Ranging from an all-round Dacron cloth to high-quality cloth with improved stretch resistance.
