Greetings Salish,

We bought our last two boats out of Shilshole and brought them both home on cold February days. Each time we overnighted in Langley on the way home where we walked up the hill for some pub food and beer. This time of the year Gray Whales come through on their way to Alaska. Watch for them next month in April.

First up; can we remove the battens from our mainsail? They keep getting caught in the lazy jacks. Which is easier, removing the battens, removing the lazy jacks, or getting a whole new sail?
We got around that problem on a previous boat by stowing the lazy jacks forward when pulling up the sail then deploying them when we were dropping it.
