Default RE: hucker rigging

Mine did too. I was told by Jim Mudry (sp?) to rig so that the sail's leech is loose to the cog sticker then to use the adjustable outhaul to tune the sail depending on the conditions.

Roger will add that you can change the mast to get even more flexibility out of the sail. I've only used my 4.8 & 5.6 with the recommended mast (Powerex 430 Z-Free for me). Roger told me I need to try my 5.6 with a Backbone RDM though. I'm curious to feel the difference.

I noticed that with the Huckers, they don't tell you what the mast extension should be set to. I guess this is because you have an adjustable sail tip. With my 4.8, I have the mast extension set to 6cm with a bit of the mast extending out to the top. With my 5.6, I have it set to 20 cm (per Jim Mudry) with no mast extending out the top.
