The tri-radial cut AP Genoa can be made out of two different laminates: Black Aramid or Pentex. The choice is a budgetary one.
The Black Aramid Genoa is made with Dimension Polyant’s BX05, which is a light material with very low stretch. The Pentex genoa is made of Dimension Polyant’s PE05 & PE10 in the high load sections of the sail, which allows for more durability.
No matter which laminate you choose, an 8oz luff tape stitched to the sail with tension, which allows perfect luff shape control. Webbing strap hanks are standard.
Standard Features: Telltales and visibility windows, draft stripes and spreader patch.
The Catalina 22 Jib is made from Dimension Polyant’s 6.4 oz High Aspect Dacron cut into cross-cut panels with radial patches. The design has a shorter luff in order to lower the clew for better performance upwind.
The 8 oz. luff tape is stitched under tension allowing perfect luff shape control. Bronze bronze hanks, telltales and draft stripes are standard.
