Jib sheet length


New Member
I'm getting a 1998 14.2 back in sailing shape. The sails appear to be original from Catalina (new ones on order!)... The jib sheets look to be a single length of line 26' long... The table in the handbook says 38'... Which to believe? 26 seems a little short for possibly reaching with a whisker pole (yet to be purchased...). Err on the side of caution & go for 38'??? Thanks!
