Title: Taper Tail
Post by: Zeke on June 21, 2011, 02:14 PM
anyone have a photo of the fitting /assembly at the rear of the front sail?  Is there also a small blob of something on the ends of the spars that keeps them from penetrating the tubing?

There is no blob at the end of the spreaders.....the tubing is folded over....
