Re: Sliding gooseneck, does it serve any purpose at all?
Easy to 'fix' it, and no reason not to, really, esp if you have a halyard winch available. A couple of sail stops above and below, or drill and pin it to the mast. Do you have a cunningham set up for the main? With a sliding gooseneck they may not have added that to the sail.. something you may want to consider if you do pin the gooseneck and you're not set up for the sly pig already...
