Main Outhaul Issue
My boat has a loose-footed, full batten main. The outhaul is internal of the boom with the clew attached to a traveler car. The tack cringle attaches to a hook at the gooseneck.
The issue is the traveler car is all the way aft yet the foot of the main is loose. I am unable to put any tension on the foot of the sail to flatten it.
I would really like to be able to flatten the sail some, the normal conditions here are 15+ knots. I'm new at this having only had the boat for 1 year but I'm pretty darn sure I've got everything assembled correctly.
Any ideas for flattening the main? Does it sound like the main is not sized correctly?
If photos will help I can get some this week and post them.
