Re: Furling Jib

I agree with LSS and C_Witch, keep the forestay. The thing at the head of the sail rides up the forestay, and the sail is tensioned by the jib halyard. The furler itself sits just inside the foot of the forestay. I had a very similar setup on my Catalina 25. It worked OK on there, but in good winds it was tough to work.
