Good idea on the heat. I'll try that. But since I have bolt ropes, I might have to do some "surgery" to change the leech length.
May get out again next Mon or Tues. Need to mod the sail before then.
Thanks for the thoughts.
Dan--I really loosened up my stays'ls so none of them are forcing the tops back. I doubt mind do any good at all for sailing--I just like the looks of them.

The problem I have had with stuns'ls has been they are only good running with the wind. If I have to attempt to tack at all with them it is useless. They look great in a photo but for working sails they are mostly useless.
