Batten install

Got a set of used sails with battens that have a taper. Which end gets the taper - I assume the leech, but want to confirm

Comments

The taper goes toward the luff.

The taper goes toward the luff. You want the leech to be straight. Also the batten cap for the luff and should have a fork in it to center the elastic band. The leech end should be smooth. Phil Scheetz FS 4086
