Joining this material - adding tabling

Use 6 mm wide double sided tape, ref TS-06, to make seams to join the panels of small sails. Use 8 or 10 mm wide Mylar tape, ref TM-08 or TM-10, for the luff reinforcement of mainsails and headsails. And use 2 mm or 4 mm wide Mylar tape, ref TM-02 or TM-04, for leech tapes.

Adding battens

Cut battens from the SAILSetc thin batten material, ref BM-T. We can supply sets of tapered self adhesive battens suitable for 65 Class & RG65 class comprising 30 at 100 mm long and 20 at 75 mm long. Ref. BS-65.
