Re: difficulty raising mainsail the last few feet

GREETINGS EARTHLINGS; OK back to basics, is the sail correct for the boat, is the boom set correctly on the mast is there a slide on the boom up and down the mast ? is cunningham, boom vang, boom down haul, reefing lines, all slack ? has the sail snaged the reefing horn on the way up? have you sent up a single slide on a down haul up to the top have you use any washing up liquid as a lube ? is the bolt rope in good contition ? All that will keep you busy for a day enjoy GO SAFE
