True, Cat, just that the damage to the sides/edges of the track on my mast make the slugs get hung up a little when I pull the mast up, so the more it pulls to the side, the more trouble it is...not a big issue until close to the top. If Bob has any damage or a tight spot in the sail track, especially up near the top, it could cause the same issue.
Bob, have you checked the size of your slugs? Did the PO use slugs that are one-size-too-large? That would definitely cause a problem!
