Re: Stack Pack battens?

We have the stock Jeanneau stack pack, and it has what feel like about 1/2" rod battens. It does the job pretty well although there are a few changes I would like to make. The ropes are long enough so that you can ease them off and lash the rolled up bag to the boom, but the ropes are connected through eye splices and there is a lot of friction so they don't slip though smoothly and are hard to adjust. I will be replacing the rope with something nicer, and possibly using small blocks instead of eye splices. Also, there is nowhere to store the excess rope, so I end up daisy-chaining it and leaving it un top of the bag. A couple of little pockets to stow it in would be nice.

It does make dropping the sail really easy, although you do have to straighten the sail out a bit to make it fit neatly before you can zip the bag up. It sure beats trying to flake the sail on the boom unaided though!

I copied the Doyle version and made my own. After watching the Sailrite video on their product I see mine is pretty much the same. I used 3/4" PVC for the battens and it works well. I used dark green Sunbrella to match the dodger but now wish I'd used white, it wouldn't look so funny with the sail up.
