Email to Mike Toppa (North Sails) from Nelson/Marek concerning sail configurations and analysis for each of the proposed masts
Good to talk on Friday about all of the recent information RE the Dorade rig configuration.
You are correct that we would like you to model sails for each of the following Rig configurations under consideration.
Option A 1936 As Is
Option B 1936 Mark II (Have been calling 2011 Mast)
Option C 1931 Mark II (Stormy Weather Type)
Option D 1931 Original
Per your request I have attached the Option A & B ACAD drawing I prepared again.
In addition to modelling the Sails please prepare your comments about any variations that would improve the sail sheeting or sail effectiveness.
Please remember that Matt is willing to replace the Sail Inventory and wants to receive your thoughts for the best Offshore and Inshore Sail Inventories without regard for the present sails.
To assist you with this task I have attached a few Sail Inventory Comments.
Comments from referred to in the above email.
