Re: Roller Furling Halyard Wrap

The top swivel is some distance from the top of the foil and I may have to use the sheave solution. I was hoping to avoid that but if it has to be done; it has to be done. It seems odd to me that it has only happened once and didn't happen again. The sail wrapping didn't look right either yesterday when it happened. It occurred to me that somehow the sail was preventing the top swivel from swivelling. I don't know how that is possible because the top of the sail is attached to the bottom of the lower portion of the swivelling mechanism, the part that is supposed to wrap.
