I guess the yawl sails the same as a ketch. Sail it quite a bit with just mizzen and genny. Sometimes I'm just too lazy to to put up the main. You know how the wind pipes up here in the afternoon.

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More
