NACRA 500 JIB  Bottom

  • I Recently acquired a NACRA 500 and after finally getting to rig it I feel like the Jib is off of a 5.0. Is there anyone out there that knows what the actual dimensions of the 500 Jib with a roller furler should be?

  • i have a 500 but I don't have a furler so I'm afraid I can't help you
  • Actually your dimensions would still help me confirm if the jib I have is off a 5.0 or not. Please let me know. Thx.

  • my 500 jib measurements

    luff:199"
    leach: 205"
    foot: 58"
  • Thanks ste4 I do you have a furler? I measured mine last night and came up with approx.
    luff 203"
    leach 2081/2 "
    foot 58"
    I haven't sailed it yet but upon rigging it up in the yard the sheeting angle seems off compared to my 450. Jib gets almost block to block and leech is nice but foot is still sloppy.

  • that should work fine. I didn't stretch mine out real hard either to measure
  • It needs a new zipper anyway. I think I am gonna take it somewhere to get it shortened in luff and leach by 3" and have new zipper sewn in. Thanks for your help.
