Jimmy & I will have you know that except for the fore topsl we

seized on just about every last one of the hanks/hoops you see in the

above pic!

But wait! What's this funky sail below called?

The sail in the upper photo looks like a fisherman tops'l, but hard to see from that angle. If it is, it's very loosely set, i assume for maximum power off the wind.
The sail in the lower photo would be a fores'l bonnet, i'm guessing. Didn't you mention these weird scrounged sails in another post? Still, looks like fun...
