Re: Roller furling on a P30

What is confusing me is that every line you mention you are calling a "sheet".

There is a line called the halyard which pulls the sail up to the top of the mast in the furler extrusion.
There is a furler control line which controls the spool of the furler and hence the furling or unfurling of the sail.
Then there are the sheets which you use when sailing; one to port side, the other to stbd. The other two lines are not "sheets".

The furler control line is usually routed back to the cockpit via blocks attached near the toe rail or on stanchion bases.

I have no good photos to help you and could not find diagrams at popular RF seller's websites (Harken, Furlex etc.).
