As I pointed out yesterday my new batten for my jiffy furl arrived and cost me 90 Euro. Today I unpacked it (actually unwound it) and discovered that I had purchased two battens instead of one. Since they are 20 feet long having the second batten on board was a bit of an issue. Solution, replace the missing batten, remove the batten on the other side that I had so carefully put together yesterday, disassemble it into its short sections, replace with the second new batten.
