Re: Problems if I remove my mainsail battens?

In addition to that not being possible given the lazy jacks are an integral part of a stack pack system, its also a major over-reaction to a simple problem that has numerous easy fixes.

1. try with the lazy jacks much looser..
2. run one side to the mast for raising the sail..
3. use #1 and bungee to shrouds, or first spreader to widen the gap.

i single hand frequently a sabre 38 and use #1.. in essence i have the lazy jacks set to "sail" length (ie really loose) and never tighten them.
