dousing a hanked jib
I only use a down haul. Mine is not rigged to brail the sail. The person who suggested the change does it all time. He claims once the sail is pulled in it comes down quite nicely and balls up loosely on the foredeck.
I have no idea what shape his sails are in, but is it really that much tighter than it would be stuffing the sail into a foredeck bag.
