I purchase some teltails for the sails by Davis marine...the directions to install are in different area...should I follow davis marine direction or does someone have a better way...davis directions are 3 teltails spaced evenly vertical about 10 inches from the luff edge. Tom Colley
One of my favorite sources of info is "The Complete Sailor" by David Seidman. It also recommends three telltales evenly spaced but at 12" aft of the luff. I think the point is to avoid the turbulence caused by initial wind separation at the luff edge and get a truer indication of wind across the jib. So 10" to 12" should work.
