Re: Help unfurling an in mast furling mainsail on a 2008 Hunter 31

Listen to Cruising Dad, he is so correct. Especially the part about furling in the main. I have found that positioning the boat on a starboard tack and then furling the sail with sheet and vang loose stops the sail from rubbing against the entry slot on the mast as in slowly furls inside the mast. Qute simply put, it just goes in easier. Easy in normally means easy out.
