Re: behind mast furler

The problem in my experience is that as soon as the sail stretches at all there isn't enough room between the foil Nd the mast to wrap the entire sail up. Which leads to lots of jams, and stuck bits. But I don't know the make/model of the one on my friends boat. After fighting it, and having two different sails cut, by two different lofts (neither of which worked). We took the whole thing down, and threw it in the trash.
