Re: Add Roller Furling: Cost estimates

The first question with converting a sail is whether it is full hoist. As the furler system shortens the hoist, a full hoist sail needs to have its luff shortened to start. If so, you should just plan on a new sail.

If not, adding a luff tape, a UV shield and a strap (to get full hoist for the furling unit) should run $3-500.

Once you get used to roller furling, it can be hard to imagine doing without...

If you do it yourself, you had better be very good friends with the people who will raising your mast.

Certified...in several regards...
