Erik Evens get a new Main for Robin Lee, Yankee #118  

March 10, 2009. Erik Evens sent in some pictures and an email about his new mainsail for Robin Lee, his Yankee #118. His email and more pictures are repeated here for inclusion in our Technical Section (minor edits)

Hi, Ron-

Finally got to go sailing on a sunny day and I got a nice photo of my new mainsail (attached).

This sail has the insignia traced from the original 1969 main, for which you have posted the pattern on the site.  The sail is 6.5 oz  Dacron, with one reef point. JSI was the sailmaker, and I dealt with Chuck Coyer, who gave mea very nice price on the main and a new 130% roller-furling genoa.  This is the second suit of sails for a Dolphin that I know JSI has made, since Mark Spector (Yankee) recommended them to me.  I believe that they made a main,jib and an asymmetrical kite for him.  JSI is a companion loft to Doyle.

On their website, there is a sail estimator, and the Dolphin 24 is in the database.

Here is the direct link to their on line estimator http://www.newjsi.com/sailquoter/index.aspx

The sails are beautifully done indeed, well made, nicely shaped and smartly detailed. They fit perfectly right out of the bag.  A great bargain, I'm very pleased.   I've included a few photos of a few details of the mainsail. These sails will last a long time, I'm sure.  I can unreservedly offer JSI as a recommendation for our fleet.
