I am debating having a sail cleaning company add reef points while my sail is there for cleaning.

I don't tend to sail in heavy air. My current set up is that the boom is designed to furl the mainsail with a crank. It doesn't work very well.

Thus, my question is what are the advantages and disadvantages of adding reef points as far as you know?

(Cost is around $200)

Thank you.

SD,

Thank you. I need to ask another question. I don't understand reefing lines, forward tack reefing cringle, and forward tack at the gooseneck. Where might I be able to read or see what you are talking about?

I am not at the point that I would do any surgery on my own sail. Sail Care is doing it for me. Hope they do a good job but in any case they will do it better than I can right now.
