7. Batten Pockets and Battens

Check if  battens can still be tightened. Check for any rips in the pocket and most importantly check all the battens are in working order, nothing snapped or about to snap. This is where rigging the sail is crucial, you can tell if a batten is about to snap, it no longer looks like the sail has a smooth constant profile.
