Hello,

I'm wondering if it is considered ok to hang the TI sail in t's Hobie bag Horizontally (parallel to the ground) under the eaves of my house.

I have four eye hooks, each with a loop of nylon rope. I then slide the sail in it's bag into the loops. I'm asking the question because with only two eye hook & loop combinations (1 at each end), the sail appears to be "bowing."

What is Hobie's suggested and approved storage method?

Thanks!

it would be better to spread the load equally - if you only have 2 hangers - have the sail and mast straddle those - having the hanging point at either end will leave a long unsupported spam that could bow - of course, I'm not sure that any damage would be done either way - the mast can bent way more than that while sailing, and there should be no issue either way.

I store my sail in my lanai, hanging from the ends. Best method I could come up with to ensure the sail dried after each use.

No issues so far...
