Re: Question for the trailer sailors
For my Catalina 25 with a furler. I use an A frame and the jib sheet winch to raise and lower. Attach the A frame to the forestay and line to winch through a pulley on the bow. Stern crutch is about 6 1/2 feet tall. Works well for me. I copied others with similar system. I always park on level ground into the wind and I normally can raise and lower solo.
