Re: Visiting Friends on Southern Cross (Dickerson 41 Sailboat)

Very notable discussion of in-mast furling. I completely agree with them. Original mast furling was a mess and I know several that still have it. At best, they work with new sails, but get very cranky as the sail stretches or if you don't furl them up with precise pressure.

Today's are remarkably more reliable. I loved to hear them describe the vast advice they received on whether to go with mast furling. Half were in favor, half were not. Then, when asked who had experience with mast furling, the half opposed had none. Love it.

Nice job, Drake.
