I have rigged the trysail at the dock/anchorage a couple of times to the end of the boom and the cut of the sail looks ok. I will try rigging it to the quarter and see what it looksl like. My guess would be that it it cut to be used with clew to boom but I will see. The boat has a separate trysail track and dedicated halyard so that part is fine. Have to do some experimenting and I probably should try it some time when it pipes up a bit (35 knots say) just to figure out things like how high up the track it should go and what the shape is like overall.

Thanks all for the advice.
