Can anyone tell me what the proper batten width and length for the bottom two battens on a H26 is. We lost the bottom two battens last sunday and searching the archives I have come up with sizes ranging from 5/8” to 1” all the way up to 1 5/8" both tapered and non-tapered! (interesting reading though). The sail is a Doyle and I assume it is the original. I am two hours away from the boat and would like to replace them for this weekend, also any idea for the length I was just going to order the same length as the boom (10ft) and trim them. One more thing I have had the boat for four seasons and never lost a batten, last winter I had the sails cleaned and repaired @ SailCare, when it came back all of the batten ends of the sail had been sewn over. Thanks in advance Chris.
