Not if itís powered up, it wonít. If the wind is forward of the mast, can you ease off the boom, so itís essentially into the wind, even if the boat is not? Downwind, Iíd likely center the boom and run near the slip. May not work on your rig.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Um, the lines exit the mast not quite horizontal, maybe 20ļ down. So they donít enter the deck organizer quite straight. Is that what youíre talking about? They run fine, they donít bind at all.
