Hi Rudy:You are describing the exact problem I had which prompted me to build my gates. Your lowest slug should be above the gate. To prevent any of the slugs from falling off the mast, install a light pin across the kerf just above the spread portion on the mast. I suppose you could raise or lower the gooseneck to position the bottom slug, but be wary of too low a boom with respect to head bashing and too high a boom for not being able to hoist the mainsail to the top. You could also move the slug on the mainsail.
