Just out of curiousity, tell us how it rigs. I watched a friend rig
his 2007 Ezzy Wave SE 6.0 on the beach last weekend. He used a 430
Nolimitz wave mast. The only thing that look strange to me was when he
downhauled the sail, the battens had a huge curve at the luff (they
wouldn't go up to the mast at all), it was like they wouldn't
straighten out and stick close to the mast. It's like the luff didn't
rotate. Maybe it was because the sail was so new and the luff
material hadn't loosened up yet. They straightened out when he put
the outhaul on. Anyway, this looked odd. I was wondering if the mast
was right for the sail. I was relieved when he put the boom on, as I
thought the curve was severe enough that the batten ends would break.
Anyway, this may have been caused by us rigging the sail. I haven't
had an Ezzy in years, and it was his first one, so it could be a case
of the blind leading the blind on rigging that particular sail.
You right, that is one heck of a tack pulley on the sail!!!
Bombproof!!! Nice colors on the sail.
