Update on the stackpack
Well, the new sail bag has been on for over half a year so I thought a quick update might be welcome since it's the most popular post on the blog. The design has worked incredibly well and made my life as a single hander much easier. If I were to start again the only change I would make is a third support line to hold the bag at the end of the boom. On this size boat it's not strictly necessary but the bag would balance better with it. I've had no degradation at all of any seams, zip etc. and water build up has not been a problem. Overall I'm very pleased with it and would happily make one for my next boat.
