Re: Boom vang on a Maramu

Early Maramus had a flaking mainsail not in-mast furling. On my Maramu, the leach of the sail rubbed against the topping lift and would also get hung up on it. So it was necessary to slacken the topping lift so the mainsail would tack properly and even then it could get hung up. You had to remember to tighten the topping lift before dropping the sail. In addition, the topping lift would prevent flattening the sail downwind, so it had to be slackened then as well.
Most early Maramu owners can attest to the annoyance of this condition unless they had a new mainsail cut so this would not be an issue.
