Re: Cam lock on main halyard?

Hello Peter again,

Regarding your batten having "broken through" the pocket...
We have a vertical battened main and the pockets are such that the batten is inserted upwards towards the leech of the sail, there is then a tail on the batten pocket with a velcro strip on it, which is pushed over the end of the batten and  into the batten pocket with a "pusher" (which is just a piece of batten shaped to fit the cap on the batten pocket tail), it should stay there...if your batten has come out, then maybe the velcro needs replacing....or the tail of the batten pocket is badly damaged and needs replacing
In any event you should probably have a sailmaker give the sail a good looking at.
