Hi:
The luff of my main feeds into the mast via a bolt rope.  Dropping the main, especially if singlehanding, is a real kerfluffle.  I'd like to add slugs, so when lowered, the luff stays attached to the mast.  I race the boat.  Will I be sorry that I gave up whatever small performance advantage the bolt rope has over slugs?
Sad to say, FLYING CIRCUS is not covering herself with glory on the race course as it is.
Regards,

I see no performance difference in having slugs versus bolt rope.

I have slugs on Still Knot Working's main and she is no slug!
I don't think you will see and loss of performance and you will enjoy sailing the boat more, especially if you are short handed.
