Just to close that thread. Issue was only mine. The main (NPC Nordac Radian 7.5) was perfect. Luff length was 37' 9 1/2" that is 2" 1/2 below max class length which is fine for me. (about 1" shorter than your 3Di Jim). 38" is exactly the max I get with my halyard topped out. After spending more time on this, cleaning up a bit the mast groove, measuring with tack free. it at the ends boils down to this new main being really the first true class legal one I have on this boat. My prior main was a bit shorter, shorter enough for me to deal with luff tension only with the halyard tension. Not something I can do anymore with this one.
Bil, I still have the original Origo pressure alcohol stove. I'll pull it out and test it. As I said above if you'll send me an email I'll send you photos. I'm at: email@example.com Are you after lifelines or the cabintop grabrails? I made up heavier teak cabintop rails...they should clean up fine. Doug.
