yes this is probably "the" most respected sailmaker of after market fat head sails. I did bring it to the sailmaker's attention and he ignored,
Sounds to me like you're giving this person/company way more credit than they deserve. You spent many hundreds of dollars or more on a sail that's perceived to be better than stock, and then when it doesn't work right, the sailmaker blows you off. That's totally bogus in my book.
But, since It sounds like you're just gonna stick it out, one possible solution would be to go to a boomless rig. Have a sailmaker (not that I would give your current sailmaker another dime) install a short length of bolt rope in the clew area and install the H17 "boomlet" which is used on the H17 Sport.
