Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

I've been told much of the issues regards full length battens and wear can be mitigated by have proper batten pocket construction and having battens be inserted from the front(luff) of the sail with the batten attached to the car so the car not the sail is handling the forward loading. ?Is this true?
