Boom Bags and Loose Footed Main
Dropped our main into the sailmaker yesterday for some much needed maintenance. Have just got off the phone from him and ...well.....they took it out the back and shot it didn't they....told me it was for it's own good.
Seriously....despite having lived under a sail cover when not in use the entire leech is severely UV degraded, the foot is stretched beyond redemption and and and.....no wonder I have problems with the set of the thing.
So it's new sail time. Ouch...expensive little suckers aren't they ?
Two questions arise....
1. Loose footed or no ?
2. SailCover or BoomBag ?
I am leaning towards Loose Footed and Boom Bag but I am wondering how a boom bag works with a loose footed main ?
All help and advice appreciated.
