Mark, Are you saying that neither sail can be hoisted to the point where the luffs are tight ? Regardless of not reaching the "top of the mast" , if the luff is tight , its as far as it goes. Its hard to understand the mizzen halyard being too short , how was it hoisted . It could be that the previous owner used a short halyard and then installed an extension when lowering it , same procedure as used on the main halyard.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Recommended Sailmaker in The Bahamas?

Hello all,

It appears as though our main and mizzen sails were either cut or rigged incorrectly (won't raise to the top of the mast).  I made an attempt to fix this myself, finding out along the way (yes, the hard way) that the mizzen halyard is about 15 feet too short to allow the sail to be dropped.  Now I think (and my wife knows) it's time to get some expert advice.  Do any members of the group know or have used a sailmaker in The Bahamas?
