    Hello...I am in the process of rebuilding a 1979 J24 Hull#1853. Since I purchased the boat with 'some' of the original sails, I am ordering a set of new sails. I have the option of having the mainsail built with a loose foot versus the original bolt rope and have no preference....can anyone one out there give me some feedback on their experiences?....
    Also, what is the feedback on having the mainsail luff with a bolt rope versus sliders?
    Thanks for any comments.
    Dirk
