    Paul - am 89 and can still single hand. How do you like your main sail cover?
    Any problem when main up? May I ask what brand? Nice hoist you
    have with your dingy.

    Thanks Paul. Am going to look into that. Have been thinking about it
    for some time. Neat operation. One last question when blowing
    pretty good very difficult to drop/fold into cover properly? Looks
    like Lazy Jacks guide in but wondering about keeping in place
    while try to zip in. Guess like sail ties secure one tie (zip part
    into cover) hold down and keep working to end?

    Yes, when it is blowing pretty good , allows one man take down of main......just put the boat into the wind.
    Once the bats are contained.......zipper it up. The cover came with a 5 foot pull cord attached to the zipper.
    The crux is to have the last jack line placed in respect to the bats.
    One of the things I got right and really worked.
    When I replace the old halyards , I did not replace reef lines since I don't reef , makes down hall of main really easy.
    I also decided to have a loose footed main, which made installing the stack pack easy.
    Also added mast gates.....https://forums.sailboatowners.com/index.php?threads/stack-pack.175839/
