Re: Roller Furler for Alberg 35

@Faster: I agree with you about trusting someone else's measurements. That said, I may be single handed on parts of the trip back, so if there's any way to bring a furler that will work up to Wisconsin with me, I'm going to try to figure it out. As I understand, the Harken system can be cut to size, so if I get unit 1 and use the standard size toggle, I can always bring down the stay and furler in Cleveland to fine tune things.

@chef2sail: That's a good point about the long link toggle. And I will probably replace the stay once I get the boat home, so if I go with the shorter toggle for the time being, swapping in the longer toggle once I get back, I'll be able to further cut down the foil on the furler to match the new rigging. As for the jibstay, I'm not sure what the setup is either. All I have to go on is a photo of the boat rigged with the previous furler on a stay that is apparently set a few inches behind the headstay.
