Meanwhile, Steve Thurston of Thurston/Quantum Sails–whose grandfather was a sail maker at Herreshoff–has been making period sails. Steve consulted his grandfather’s 1950’s notebook to make sure he got everything right; Steve was also able to consult Hathaway’s sail maker note book for construction details of this particular #1 stay-sail (Hathaway was head sail maker at the time). Observe the stay-sail construction. Missing are the last steps where the outlines of the panels and battens were added, but you can see the effect when it was hoisted for the Bash.
Stunning!
