Re: CDI Furler Halyard is Getting Stuck

Can you get alongside a taller pier or structure and get a 'closer look' without climbing the rig? Binoculars can help here too... Or is a mast tower accessible to you? Another boat with mast steps?

IIRC it's not that big a deal to slip the furler off the forestay, you'll need to replace the part anywya..
