Behind mast roller reefing

People thought I was nuts whenI told them I was going from single handing a Catalina 30 to single handing an Irwin 38CC. You''ll never be able to manage that monster of a mainsail is all I heard. What they didn''t know was that the Irwin was fitted with a Mack Pack system for managing the mainsail. The effort needed to handle the mainsail on the Irwin is a small fraction of the effort needed to handle the mainsail on the Catalina 30.

Take a look at their website at:
