All Battens Same Size or sailmaker Specific?

    Lost the top batten on my Shore Sails Main.... Do class rules dictate what specs the battens have to be (anyone have dimensions?) or does each sailmaker create their own lengths?

    I need dimensions on the top-most batten on Main.

    Thanks!

    In short. No. Battens come in different sizes but the width of your other batten is the same. My recommendation is to measure the width of the sleaave and buy batten material then cut to length. I keep a stock of batten in my garage. Always snap or the kids loose them on our laser and cat too. They are easy enough to replace.


    Give APS a call They are extremely helpful and will be able to sell you the right size.
