On my First-42, i have a sleave, or sock that pulls down over the kit.
The main reason for the belly button ring, is for emergencies to deflate the sail....

Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didnít work before.

Donít waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.

Never design a mast that is weaker then the boat

Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.
