Loosen Out Haul and Roller Jib

Ok, in follow up to my sea cock post. Do you release tension on your main out haul and the luff of your roller jib after each sail in order to increase the life of the sails?

Thank you,

Tysen

Re: Loosen Out Haul and Roller Jib

I typically do, especially if Iíve done something goofy while trying to shape the sails
