How long do you consider "daily/not daily"...?

I'll be more a "weekend only" sailor, I don't want to see my stuff all "rotting in the sun" for weeks on end... but don't want to get into a strip and replace every other day routine either...?

My sails aren't in great shape...maybe 6-7 out of 10 scale. I'm more of a stuffer than flaker when bagging them. I envision using the jib bag when I'm sailing regularly throughout the week during spring and summer. My personal season tails off in September-October and picks back up in March. During the off season sails go below.

Takes me about a minute to put the foresail on, and about the same to take it off again. I figure two minutes of my time is better than having the sail eaten/stolen/rotten/pooped on/slept in.

If I'm sailing the next day I leave it in the foredeck bag. If not, it comes off (still in the foredeck bag). If I was weekend sailing, I'd put it on Friday, take it off Sunday. I wouldn't leave it up all week.

Yeah, hadn't thought about the "stolen" (etc...) part...

Takes me more than a minute just to wrestle a bagged sail out of the hull and drag it up to the foredeck, not to mention taking it out of the bag, hanking it on, running the sheets and attaching them, etc.
You be fast mon.

As for the rest, I've never had a sail bagged in place on the headstay stolen, eaten, or rotted. The bag protects the sail from poop, but I have to confess I have taken a nap up forward. Spinnakers are softer than working jibs though.

I'm a hank ninja
I've never had one stolen/pooped on etc either, but then they stay safely inside my boat. I think the biggest danger at our marina is an otter deciding to have a snooze on it, and that's gonna be a smelly hoist.
There's a few boats in the marina with sail bags on the foredeck, just seems like one more thing to get messed up to me, but each to their own.

Ouch. If I had otter vandals I'd have my sails below deck too.
