"Maybe the main is so " I hate to ask, but is the main so old that there is no resin coating left on it, and it feels as soft as a bedsheet?
It could just be so old and blown out (distorted) that it won't drive the boat properly no matter how it is trimmed. I know, sails cost money...but like fresh fruit & veggies, they are very much a consumable item.
