Re: CDI Furler Halyard is Getting Stuck

Caberg, I'm assuming on your 26 you are using the CDI FF2 and are referring to the internal halyard. If so, take a close look at the furler luff. Is there any twist or bend? If so that is where your problem lies. I just replaced mine this spring because it was so distorted from 16 years in the desert sun I could no longer move the carrier through the channel without a hammer and screw driver to assist in the operation. Here you can see the new one compared to the old side by side:
