A sail change would have been easier. This boat just had the 150 aboard, so if we wanted a sail, we had to rethread the %$@ furler not just haul down the sail. And that was a job best done by "first, unscrew the itty bitty screw under the furling drum and try not to drop it into the ocean".

No doubt you know the drill.
