    I just got my mainsail reefed. Is there a proper way to reef or I just use my common sense? Any pics will be helpful? Thanks.

    Ed,

    I found a diagram in the Handbook. It was very helpful to get me started. I rigged the sail up yesterday and tried it out at home. It was a kind of sloppy, and not sure what I can do.

    Since I have an old Capri (1987) and I am not sure if the new one does, mine does not use hank to attach the main to the mast. It is much more difficult to fold the main properly as I dropped the sail.

    Has anyone convert to hank on thbe main sail. TIA.

    Later,
