    Hi. I saw this type of sail on a homemade sailboat out on the water on Lake Erie (see attached sketch). The area looked to be about 40 to 60 sq ft. The sail was all white with a red emblem that looked like two red parallelograms, as best I could discern. It was a catboat type of sail. It had a fairly long foot relative to the luff. There was no jib. If anyone knows the manufacturer and model of the sail, please let me know. It looked like a sail that would be suitable for a homemade boat that I am building. Thanks.

    That insignia doesn't ring a bell for me, nor with a quick check of my insignia data base. How close are the proportions to the actual logo?

    Tyvek? Many of the synthetic building wraps have the seller's logo/name on them. Many homebuilders cut around the worst of the corporate advertising and broadseam the clear parts together.

    You can remove the logo's and advertizing on Tyvek and other building wraps with alcohol and other relatively safe solvents. I have test bed Tyvek sails, all white with my logo spray painted on them.
