I got a new batten today, makes a big difference, sail bags better and furls looser, all round much happier :)

Thanks to all those who contributed to this post and made me aware of this issue. 8)
I'll have to chase up the thicker batten. :)

Hello. I have a 2014 Hobie AI. From the first day I face the problem that the guys have here with the distorted saiL due to the batten but I did not knew that this was a problem until I show the post. I have not put any tension to the batten and I only see the problem mostly when I am close hauled and close reach. At the beam reach the problem is solved. Furthermore when I unfurl the sail the three last turns are impossible to turn so I always pull the sail with my hands. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for your reply.
