Dear Glen-L world:

No, we don't have sails for the Yankee Star. A local sailmaker should be able to make them from the dimensions given on the plans.

Since your are a distibutor, I was curious if you had a model for a 40footer i.e. the Yankee Star?

Also, if the sailboat is under sail and the prop is turning, can the motor be used a a generator?

Does Glen-L have the Sail packages available for the Ketch rigged Yankee Star or do I need to have them custom made?

I just got the plans for the Yankee Star. I hope that the Glen-L sails are available for the Ketch rigged Yankee star.

I have taken the first step... My wife got me the Reuel book about cold molding and the study plans for the Yankee Star. Darla sent me the confirmation email with the shipping info.

Glad to see another builder from Florida. I am looking to build the 40' Yankee Star as my retirement home.
