Shape shifting success

Finally: a decent shape

It appears, to me at least, that the effort to remove the excessive draft from the mizzen was successful!   For the first time, the mizzen is pulling while sailing upwind with the main hoisted.  Previously, it was so baggy that it was worthless unless I dropped the main.  And since that would only happen in a blow, when a sail with huge draft is just what you don't want, the sail was previously pretty much a waste.

Also, removing the 7" from the leech has the boom pretty much horizontal, which improves the aethestics of Eolian quite a bit.
