Fiberglass battens are stronger and less expensive than foam battens, but also heavier. You trim the batten to the exact length needed (minimum 24-1/8″).
The 43-3/4″ jib batten can be trimmed to fit:
- Wave #5 36″
- Getaway #8 34-1/2″
- Newer H16 Jib #3 43-3/4″ No trimming necessary. Older H16 requires a 45-3/4″ batten; measure batten pocket and order #46-3030-1 if necessary.
- H16 Jib #4 30″
- H17/H17 Sport #6 Length Varies
- H18 #9 28-1/2″
Battens are numbered starting with #1 at the bottom and counting up. Measurements shown are guidelines only, so be sure to measure your sail’s batten pockets before cutting! When measuring sail for battens, add approximately 2″ to length of batten pocket to allow for compression and batten ties. Wear gloves and mask when cutting fiberglass. Leech cap is included.
A $12 oversized item fee will be added at checkout (one fee per order).
