What we do with the stack pack, is the main will not slide all the way down, so I take a boat
hook and pull the sail slugs down and the luff of main folds nicely into the stack pack.
I flake the rest of the main down into the stack pack, no part of the sail or battens are sticking out. Looks all ship shape and squared away.
The main halyard
runs into the cockpit
, and Erica gives me slack, and the halyard is under control. Then I will tie the main halyard off and away from the mast
to keep it from slapping and banging .
