We are looking to make our raising of the main sail and reefing of the man sail easier.
Lubing the the sail slugs and cleaning and lubing the sail track will help.
Also re-fitting the reef lines would help. We also think that the reef lines are too big and bind in the sail gromets when raising the sail. They are also heavy to pull up with the sail.
New size that is smaller than the 1\2 inch reef lines we have. This size fits in the block sheave a lot nicer.
