Re: Stackpacks, Lazyjacks, and Mainsail Facts!

We installed the dutchman system on our last boat when we had a new main built Took about a season to get the sail broken in but once that was done the system worked great. The main would fold itself in perfect flakes. The cover had to be modified to fit around the lines.
We have in boom furling on the current boat and I'd never go back. Fully battened main that goes up and down from the cockpit very quickly. Takes seconds to put the main away. Infinite reefing too. Down side is cost. Ours was $17k
