Re: downhaul on hanked on foresail.

I know of a foresail downhaul threaded through only every second, third or fourth hank to work smoothly on a Contessa 26, whereas threading through each hank resulted in the problem you described. Not sure whether residual slapping on the sail remained on the Contessa 26.

I have roller furling but wonder whether a little tension on the downhaul (bungee cord?) of a hanked on foresail might reduce slapping?
