Oh for blue sails... Double layered Dacron?
I finally have my cruising budget built up to where I can at last have some new sails made, and have long yearned for non-white sails, particularly something in a nice royal/pure blue.
Alas, according to all the lofts I've been talking to, it seems that colored Dacron is only available these days in fairly light weights, 4oz being the heaviest I've found. I was actually hoping for some beefy 10oz offshore cruising sails, but am wondering whether it's madness to simply layer up two sheets of 4oz blue Dacron, sewn together into what would roughly equate to an 8oz sail.
Or must I be doomed to have pathetically boring white sails on my boat...?
(or blue sails barely capable of force 4 and a gentle hand)
If a man speaks at sea where there is no woman to hear, is he still wrong?
