Funny you should mention that. I sailed for three months before I realized that I even had battens. Newbie and all. But, I figured that if the sails were made for battens, it would probably make sense to use them. Can you expand on the pros and cons?
If what your doing has been deemed illegal, you're doing it wrong...
