What size is a Raven-I reserve Can't Post

Can't seem to find it anywhere. Probably not looking in the right places!

Thank you.
I've had it for 18 months, only seen it once, during repack.

181 is the number Precision uses, but if the Raven I were measured by the method PD uses, the number would be more like 170 or thereabouts.

Having landed one or two over the years, I'd go with Beezy's assasment.

181 top skin measurement.

The bottom skin is closer to 170.

Twenty-some-odd years ago, PIA wrote a standard that worked great for simple, medium-sized rectangular canopies.
Unfortunately PIA's method was not good enough for compolex, tapered, elliptical canopies.

I can see, where the tapered, eliptical canopies would cause a problem, in regard to measuring. Some may be tapered more or less than others. It's kinda like our tax system here in the states... if it's simple and easy... the politicians wouldn't understand it! Thanks, for your reply!
