Re: Furling Jib

on a 15' boat I would think you would need to remove the forestay and replace it with the furler and the wire luff in the sail. the fore stay would be in the way for furling unless there is a way to install the furler behind the forestay with some clearance for the drum. the sail luff needs to be tight to furl and the slack forestay would get wrapped up in the sail
