I measured mine and I find a maximum of 25.02 mē
( lof 14,30m x Lpg 3,50m / 2)
that it is the real size of your thank you and the dimensions if possible because I would like to make a new one.

Can't help for the 370 but I had the same proportionnal difference on mine between yard's docs and reality...
I swap my original self tacking jib for a Trilam Trekking one with 3 vertical battens.
I got 1 m2 more due to a more straight leech.
This was a costly but huge improvement in yacht's drive.


hanse 355 - 57
