I understand that this is one scenario that causes a lot of concern with furlers. I have a preventer installed on the forestay which is supposed to prevent the halyard from wrapping around the forestay.
TB, do you have a preventer? If not, I would think you would want to look into it before launching.
Im still learning about furlers. I go back to the days of hanked on head sails.
