Re: Is there a professional sailmaker on this forum?

...and the outhaul controls draft depth, not sail shape. It's not a substitute for the mainsheet. This might contribute to your premature mainsail delamination if the sail has been flogging a lot. The clew should be sliding close along your boom on a slug or track.
I suspect you might need a little help with sail trim.
