    Nicky's has inherited the Rocna cardboard templates I made when checking this for my boat. Should be hanging on her wall somewhere for you to borrow, and when I bought our current Rocna 25 they agreed to match the best online offer I could find, which saved me the hassle of finding somewhere to ship it.

    As for performance, can't complain at all. Just last night in Sesimbra it didn't budge one bit when we, uhm, verified the correctness of the pilot book, which read "deserved reputation for strong local northerlies"

    This wind was apparently 180 deg opposite to the forecast..

    Last Thursday, while waiting for a quick sewing job (great service!), I noticed some templates on the floor under a rack by the used bits section.
