Subject: Boltrope Interpretation
Fellow members; Larson, Goodwin, Orlebeke and I agreed to this new interpretation to be effective ImmediatelyMembers: Zakrzewski , Hamrak , recused
2/8/2020 “Boltrope “ is to be made of rope or cord consisting of fibers and or plastic cord. Material cross section is open. The rope or cord material needs to be covered by a polyester (Dacron) fabric and attached to the luff and foot of sail. Said fabric need not comply with sail construction requirements. Covering material should be
limited to the area closely adjacent to the luff and foot. The bolt rope primary function is to keep sail contained by
mast and boom.
Thank you ALL!
