Re: Stack Pack battens?
Thanks, Minnesail, I wasn't aware Sailrite offered a kit. I'll take a cue from that and go with PVC if my phone-tag game with the local Doyle loft doesn't result in something better.
I agree these pack systems look and feel really goofy underway, but man, watching that main drop lock a rock on the Tides track after an exhausting day, and then just having to pull a zipper...it's been pretty awesome even with the faulty setup I have now. It would be a really pain to deal with sail wrangling otherwise on a 12.5' boom that's nearly 5' off the coachroof. I understand why a PO made the upgrade on this boat.
