What was the best thing you fitted to your boat?
On the stack-pack question, what do you do with it while sailing? My main question is around it flapping and driving me insane.
Best thing I did was disconnect the stack pack from the lazy jacks because it just was unacceptable flapping around there while sailing.
So what we have is a bag that lives on the boom inside the jacks. we just roll it and tuck it in a bit each side and it disappears along the boom.
drop the sail as usual inside the lazy jacks , shake the cover out and zip it up no problem. No wear or chafe issues, must be close on 5 years old now.
I'll tell you for free what they don't tell you about stack packs though. They have a zip along the top and rainwater accumulates like you will not believe. The rainwater produces slime in your lovely sail if you leave it for a few weeks, winter say.. So its worth putting a lot of extra effort into getting that flap oversized and well overlapped to mitigate that. I have to top my boom up when we leave the boat just to beat that problem.
