Hi Guys,

My mains'l took some persuading to run up the groove today, I guess it hasn't been used for a few months and the luff is dry, am I right in thinking it can be 'greased' with bees wax to make it slide better or is there a better alternative solution?

I suggest giving the luff a spray with silicone lubricant available from chandleries. Much cleaner

Don't use grease. It will attract muck. Silicon spray.

Mclube is what you need.

I have indeed bought McLube Sailkote. (also relieved you recommended the same product).

I have been using WD-40 PTFE lub spray on all things on the boat, Genny luff, main sail slides, in fact most things as it is really good.
