I saw this ad by chance on facebook marketplace. It looks like it's symmetrical, and the ad claims the sail is "like new." The seller says it comes with a "sail bag," but the photo shows what appears to be a spinnaker sock. If it's truly like new, $300. is a great deal, and, if it includes a sock, it's a steal.

[Just click on the underlined text. The link messed up the format, but I think I fixed it.]

Hmm. Do those numbers match a Catalina 25? The foot matches the Capri 25 but luff on a Capri is 30' and change.

Don't know, but the mainsail luff of a C25 Tall rig is 1' longer than a Capri 25 mainsail luff. If it will fit a Capri 25, it should also fit a Catalina 25 T.

The Standard rig "I" is 29'. The Tall rig "I" is 31.' The "I" dimension for a Capri 25 is 30.75 (3" shorter than the Catalina 25 T). The last I checked, at least some sailmakers were making tall and standard rig spinnakers the same size.

A prospective buyer should check whether it will fit their tall or standard rig boat. Someone here probably knows for sure.

Tall rig C25 "I" = 31', you say Capri 25 "I" = 30.75. Difference is 0.25" not 3". If a Capri spinnaker, it should fit a tall rig C25 easily. I don't know the answer to this, but do the the class rules for C25 and C25T allow for different spinnaker sizes?

I'm easily confused when it comes to numbers and decimals, but isn't 0.25 of a foot (or 1/4th of a foot) 3"?

Under the C25 racing rules, the tall and standard rig boats can use different size spinnakers. Here are the applicable rules:

(1) Luff - The length of the luffs shall be taken as the distance between the highest point of the sail [i.e. at the head of the sail] and the foot [i.e. at the clew] measured around the edge of the luff. The dimension shall not exceed: Tall Rig - 31' 1"; Standard Rig - 29' 3 1/2". [parentheses are mine]

(2) Girth - The maximum shall be measured across the widest point of the sail between points equidistant from the head. The dimension shall not exceed 18' 10 3/4".

This spinnaker appears to be appropriate for a standard rig C25, but small for a tall rig.
