Re: Flaking the Main Sail

Chef got to accept your experience with your boat(s). Never had e-z jacks but have had several boats with lazy jacks and tried 3 and 4 leg systems on one as it gave me trouble. Current boat has mast pulpits so I guess I can bring jacks out there if necessary.Got to admit sometimes lazy and haven't brought them forward when just day sailing. Guess it one of those things if you ask three people you get four opinions. Picking up the boat this sunday so will not be dependent on other folks opinion in a few weeks about ease of use. Will take a few years before having an opinion about wear. Still as line goes through grommets and lies softly on sail not too worried. More concerned the sail will likely fold in just about the same place every time and that maybe hard on the fibers/coatings. spoke with lofts in MA and Cali about dutchman. Said harder to set up right and needs to be set up right to function correctly. if not done correctly it's a headache.
