|I have tried a masthead headsail off an Elliot 8 (their No 3 I think) The boat went well with it and weve got a huge 3/4 genoa with big overlap. But we found two problems. 1. The the forestay tension was very hard to maintain. How did you do it. Did you remove the 3/4 forestay? 2. The big genoa backwinds the main badly and makes main trimming very difficult |
And out of curiosity where did you get it if second hand what was it off and lastly where do you sail?
