Anyone have a great method for neatly stowing the main on the boom (mast is up) when trailered?
My current method is to accordion-fold the sail, starting at the foot and making a "pocket" of the bottom three or four feet of sail, then accordion-folding the rest (continuing from the bottom) into that pocket. Once it's all gathered up I secure the bundle to the boom with the mainsheet. Keeps it out of the cockpit so I can move around and clean and whatnot, keeps it protected from any rain that might come in overnight because it's right up under the cover, and a big advantage is that the head of the sail is right there ready for the halyard and smooth hoisting. The drawback is that it's very awkward for whoever's at the aft end of the sail trying to gather it into the pocket.
Just wondering if anyone has come up with a better method. Thanks!
