Ok, so I knew when I bought the boat the main sail no longer had battens and since I can't find out what the original battens were, I figured I'd go ahead and purchase
a set of Recmar Plastream and put them in.
The aerotek sails
that came with the boat have no grommets to tie the battens in, no flaps to hold them in, and they aren't held in place using a mechanical fastner. So I'm thinking of putting elastic over the batten pockets, or is there another way to hold the battens in place so they don't work their way out?
It is probably a big surprise to no one that I'm having to repair the batten pockets and the seam along the leach.
