KARVER: THE LOCKING SPECIALIST Choosing the right sailing hardware can improve your boat's performance. The latest equipment is lighter, takes less room and is more efficient - it is now able to block and hook heavy loads. Every lock mechanism aims to incorporate these benefits by replacing ropes with mechanical devices. Today's fabrics are more and more advanced (3DL, Titanium, Laminated...) to help reduce the overall weight of the sail and maintain its shape thus minimising power loss due to its distortion. To benefit from the power of this type of sail, it is important to minimize the possible...
