Good morning Ian,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Happened to me once and it was because the ballooner and spinnaker lines were twisted… so as I raised the ballooner it did not lock into the mousetrap.

The last few times I have used my ballooner it has
failed to lock into
the swivel. The halyard run looks normal and I have tried
rotational positions other than the recommended one of the
dead aft. It still refuses to lock. I am wondering if the
be lower to offset the rearwards departure of the halyard as
nears the top? I could only lower the genoa by a few inches
touches the pulpit rails. I have tried both my nylon and
with and without the sail attached. The mousetrap on the
and functions normally, or did a few weeks ago when I had
the genoa down
after the problem first appeared.
Any thoughts please? I love using this sail.
