Sail dimensions for stock H14T Jib  Bottom

  • Anyone have the Luff, Leech and Foot dimensions for a stock H14T jib? Acquired a new (old) boat with very good condition aftermarket sails. However, after first sail, I can't trim the jib well...upper 1/3 of leach is way loose and flapping frequently. Only a single ring in the clew (going to correct that). Getting help on looking at rig, to make sure it is set up well. But since sail is aftermarket, wanted to see if it was same as stock. Sails made by SuperSailmakers. TIA!

    BTW...found these dimensions online...not sure if they are accurate, however.

    Luff 12f 9 in
    Foot 5ft
    Leech 11ft 11 in

  • Drej,
    You may have better luck on the Hobie forums.
    The H14T is a bit of a rare thing.
    Have you searched for the H14T manual online?

  • Tks, Klozhald. I did post in the Hobie forum...also ended up contacting Hobie directly.

  • Have a couple H-14T jibs. Pete
  • Thanks, pbegle. I was able to measure my jib this weekend The leach is about 12 inches longer than standard (based on what I found online and a response from Hobie). I am going to investigate having it cut down a bit. If that is too expensive, I guess I will look at replacing it.
