But as the eye travels, looking down the boom from the end towards the bow, the foot (edge coming in contact with the book) goes from tight, to bagged, to tighter where the grommet attaches to the gooseneck. I think the sail looks really nice, really well made, so I feel like this must be an adjustment issue on my boat.
