That's what we used to do before we went inflatable. On the PB that left less than enough room on the foredeck on Raven just enough room. Either or it's not a situation I'm all that happy with. Furler does mean that there is less reason to go forward but I'm not all that happy clambering over a dink to get to e.g the anchor.
