Re: Furling Jib

You might do better reposting this in gear.

This sort of thing is common but getting it right requires some experience of the particular model. I have to say that the jib hanks are confusing me as the sail appears to have a built in wire luff. On the setups I have used on smaller boats that wire luff would replace the existing forestay. I don't see how you could use the hanks to attach the sail to an existing forestay then use the furler.
