Re: Mainsail Bolt Rope or Slugs at Boom
Sorry my bad you did say foot, but I couldn't figure out how that equated to use in a stack pack. Loose foot is the way to go. If your sail has a shelf foot in it though, it kind of leaves a lot of material laying around for not reason doing nothing. Might want to consider that as well. Perhaps sailmaker can recut?
As for the foot with slugs? I've not seen that except clew and tack. Or completely inside the boom.
When someone says boltrope I always think luff, my bad.
