Good idea. The boom is heavy enough to flaten the sail in light wind when you want a fuller sail. Using the topping lift makes perfect sense, just as using a vang does in heavy wind to flaten the sail. I never hesitated to use the topping lift in light wind to shape my mainsl while racing my Cape Dory 25.

Never hurts to make sugestions, but the captain is "the decider", right or wrong.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
