For those who are interested, here a supplement on the subject of fully battened main:
By chance, I spoke to the former owner of the Super Maramu Stenella today. (Sold eight weeks ago.) He had replaced the main and mizzen on his Super Maramu with fully battened sails in 2011. The sailmaker was Beilken. All battens are consistently led to the foot of the sail. As he reported, there have never been any problems with the battened sails when furling, unfurling or reefing over the years!
