I noticed a problem with my 83 project boat. The base of the luff track on the comp tip side doesn't line up very well with the base on the aluminum side of my H16 mast. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =1&theater
The base of the luff track on the comp tip side is raised about an 1/8" over the aluminum side of the luff track. There's also a 1/2" gap between the two luff tracks. I can slide the luff track back down to deal with the gap, but then the uneven bases really seem to create a barrier. How do I deal with these two issues? They make raising the mainsail much harder if I have any tension on the battens, and it seems like it's damaging the sail at the luff rope.
You can see some bondo underneath the joint of the luff track. Is excess Bondo underneath the luff track forcing it too high? Or is the Bondo only on the sides of the luff track?
