Good Day All,

A member of my sailing club has a lightly used Doyle Main that is 12' x 37'. I am trying to see what the actual dimensions are for the T-37 mainsail. I see the E=12 and the P=41.5. Is that the main's size? I see the I is 47 so I'm thinking that is the height from the deck to top of the mast. Can someone please clarify. I'm sensing that this sail is a little too small. Thanks.

"P" is the luff length of the mainsail, measured along the aft face of the mast from the top of the boom to the highest point that the mainsail can be hoisted or black band.
"E" is the foot length of the mainsail, measured along the boom from the aft face of the mast to the outermost point on the boom to which the main can be pulled or to the black band.
"I" is measured along the front of mast from the genoa halyard to the main deck. The main deck is where the deck would be if there were no deckhouse.

I have a very good used Sobstat/Quantum mainsail for a T-37, if you're looking for a used sail it would be a much better fit. I'm cruising right now, will be back in the spring.

This evaluation was done by Bacon Sails

SOBSTAT MAIN 8.0 OZ DACRON. 3/8" ROUND NYLON SLUGS WEBBED TO GROMMETS ON COVERED ROPE LUFF. 3/4" FLAT NYLON SLIDES WEBBED TO GROMMETS ON COVERED ROPE SHELF FOOT. CUNNINGHAM CRINGLE. REEF UP 4' 4". PEEL OFF NUMBERS, DRAFT STRIPES & "TARTAN 37" INSIGNIA. TAKES TWO FULL AND TWO EXTENDED BATTENS - INCLUDED, MINOR STAIN/SOIL. VERY GOOD. BLACK BAG. 42 lbs.
