Hi Guys and Gals,
Need a little advice. I have a C&C 27 MK V and need to replace the furling 150/155 will be doing a little bit of Club racing. Im thinking of a Tri-radial dacron from Precision using Challenger Warp drive. Also, I see Precision has a laminate, made from Contender Black Polyester Racing ZZP09. Love the look and that you can see through it. Big question how long will the laminate last especially with it often hitting the baby stay. I guess I can eliminate the baby stay?  Your experience and advice, please. Anybody use Precision? Not locked into using that sailmaker, though they are much less money.

I do not use the baby stay - the attachment point acts, at times, as a downhaul for my spinnaker. No issues to report as of yet.Joshua C. Harper

I too use the deck attachment point as a downhaul for the spinnaker. It is a bit awkward when jibing to bring the pole around in front of that baby stay. When racing and handling the pole, that baby stay is a great place to hold on to.  love the name of your boat. What headsail and sailmaker do you use? Happy with them?

I don't use the Baby Stay unless it's really blowing and the boat is really punching into the waves. All the Baby Stay does is stop the mast from excessively pumping.
As for which sailmaker to use, I've always found that you get what you pay for. Also sooner or later you are going to need to get your sail/s serviced so it's best to establish a relationship with a local business.
Any reputable sailmaker in your area should be able to explain the pros and cons of the various types of materials and types of cuts to assist you in making a decision on what to purchase.
