Re: Advice wanted: Tides Marine Track and Slide system
You can get away with heavy material on a full batten main because the battens hold the shape in light winds. And it won't lose shape in a blow. The large roach gives extra sail where you need it in light winds. The track is almost frictionless, but not as good as a ball bearing system. I have swept back spreaders so I don't reef on a run.
