Re: CDI Furler Halyard is Getting Stuck

I had the same problem with my CDI furler. When I took the mast down, it turned out that the aluminum pulley at the top halyard fixture was worn on one side, allowing the wire halyard to cut into the black plastic fixture. I replaced the pulley and the halyard (lots of fishhooks) and the genoa went up much more smoothly. Sailkote helped a tiny bit, but the bolt rope was not the problem.
