Roach it is!
I went down to the loft and chatted with the designer for quite a while and he convinced me that the TL issue was really not going to be a big deal, or no deal at all, and he is adamant about the increased performance. I have decided that if I have to loosen/tighten the TL, so be it. I have decided to add lazy jacks also, so I might have to fidddle with them too. Rich, I may try the bungee idea; that's a simple smart fix.
I agree with Jeff. It is those light wind days when I am going to love this. (Cape Dorys sail just fine in lots of wind.) I am pretty psyched about these new sails and the added performance. These will be Hallett sails, and the Hallet family has won a lot of sailboat races in these parts.
By the way, I agree it looks like TrueBlue's TL is too tight, and my guess is that the sail is not setting quite right because of that. I have inadvertantly done that, and wondered why my main looked funky. Not hung up, just baggy.
This has been very helpful. Thanks everyone!
