When raising the sail for the first time this summer (I bought the boat this year) after attaching the boom to the mast, I attempted to thread the track slides of the mainsail into the mast track and found the spread in the track was actually BELOW the boom, rather than above it. I had to remove the boom to thread the mainsail slides into the mast track. Once that was done I was able to reattach the boom to the mast and slide the sail's foot slides into the track of the boom. Is this a common manufacturing mistake found on Venture 21's or is mine unique?
