I have a Hunter 37.5 and have a problem after dropping the mainsail into the bag attached to the boom. I cannot access the zipper at the top because it is too high. Are there any suggestions how to solve my problem?

I pull my traveler over to the side so I can get to get it standing on the gunrail (or on the arch for me). You could also loosen the main sheet and pull the boom over so you get get to the end

Two ideas. Ease the topping lift and/or slack the mainsheet and move the boom over to be able to stand on the side deck and reach. Neither I would do underway.

I added a long pull onto the zipper. I still can't reach the top of the sail bag, but as long as the sail isn't in the way, I can close it.
