eerrrr..... no.......!!!!!

This is Boardseeker not boards.....!!!

Boardseeker is for cool people who like the action and cool stuff in windsurfing..... Boards is where people need to go to discuss the fine tuning of there carbon pre-preg no 3 batten vs. their traditional glass fiber tubular rod batten..... Get a grip!!!

Windsurfing is a cool sick sport!!!!! techy's watch out!!! :-)

I'm using Ezzy Sails / Masts ... I have the opposite combination to what is suggested. ie you usually use a larger top than bottom, however I have a larger bottom than top. Will this make the sail stiffer or looser?

?! Tis is about question #5.!? We have North sails at our center. And there is totally different story with them. As soon as you increase downhaul tension the "distance between where the boom fastens to the mast and the clew (ie the boom length)" gets LESS. It looks like north masts are bent on the top only. Or I'm wrong?

Just a quick bump on this one.

I'm using the opposite to what they recommend for my 5.2m. I have 430Bottom 400Top. I'm not sure if this will make the mast stiffer or looser? and what affect this will have on the sail dynamics?
