to notice this thread just now as 20 minutes ago I removed 15cm of dynema that I was using to raise my Genoa
. Last year I had changed roller units and the tack was 15cm closer to the deck
. I want to see if the pullpit will interfere with the sail or not which is why I removed it.
The dynema was looped 4 or 5 times between the tack and the roller.
Word of warning!!!!
With the extension, when sailing close hauled, because the sail tack was "free" it was pulled away from the roller and therefore where the sail entered the roller track, the sail was pulled at an angle that started to damage it. I fixed it by looping some more dynema from the tack around the roller unit.
