I just acquired a Siren 17. I need sails...
I'd also like to put any info about this boat in one easy to find spot.
Right now there is a Private yahoo group...
So if anyone has sail sizes and boom tent sizes and or drawings I'd love to copy them and put everything together.
If you have a link that may be heplful please pass it along.
Here is the sailboatdata.com link:

Thanks all!

The IJPE specs shown in Sailboatdata should get you far in selecting/ordering sails.
I ~= jib luff
J = distance from tack fitting to mast
P = main luff
E = main foot (boom length)(try an 8'x6' tarp for a trial boom tent)

Siren info

A good guy to contact is Pat Reagan (Shoretyus) on the Trailer Sailor forum. He used to have a Siren and has moved bigger to a Sirius.
Pat is very knowledgeable about modifications.

Something doesn't seem right with the sailboat data spec for the sails, 22 ft luff on a 17ft boat would be a pretty tall rig. Eyeballing the picture, if it is to scale looks like it should be smaller. Also, looking for new sails came across FX sails that has different dimensions for the sails for your boat. See link below and scroll down to Siren. I would confirm the dimensions over on the yahoo group or measure your own boat before ordering sails. Never owned a Siren but when I first stated looking for a boat I came across a couple.

Tom makes some good points. In any case, a boat that old you don't know what might have been changed by previous owners. Best thing to do is measure for yourself.
