Re: rigging advice

Ok I agree with you 100%, but why is it adjustable with quick releases like a halyard?. When do you tighten/loosen it? It's a tartan 31

Re: Reefing trouble

So what I am getting out of this is that I have single reef line with a balance block. I only use one line to reef from the cockpit.

Re: Reefing trouble

There is a balance block. I took it out by pulling the leach reef line. There's 2 separate lines for each reef. The out haul does not need a block, nor does the topping lift. Maybe I'm using...

Re: Mainsail battens

yes there is Velcro on the sail where It would hold the battens in on the leach, but the other Velcro part I meant was at the foot of the mainsail, near the mast, on both sides of the sail. Each side...

Re: Mainsail battens

The sail is fairly new and unused, no more then a few years old. So I guess it's because of the lack of battens. I have adjusted tension just about everywhere and it did help some... Sometimes I get...

I noticed that my mainsail curves too much. The leach curves in a lot and it is hard to get the tell tails to fly properly. It is a Doyle stack pack, which is fully battened. I think the problem...

awesome, didn't think that would work.

Question, The lazy jacks were extremely tight, as you can see in the picture. This didn't allow for the boom to come down and tighten the mainsail. There was...
