WH starts at about 7-8 kts wind which is much to early to put in a reef. I probably should reef at 15 kts but never do until 20 kts
Like I said B-4 I'll try to flatten out the old main sail this season and if that doesn't work I'll pray to Santa Claus for a new(er) main.

Again thank you all for your feedback.
Let's go sailing another couple of weeks B-4 the boat is in.
