Furling Main Sails

Jeff,
I tend to agree with you on the furling main sail. There are times on a boat when the main just has to come down, now. I think I want gravity on my side. What did confuse me is what you said about Brewers vs. Whitbys. The boat I have been looking at in Maine is a ketch with two head sails and a keel/centerboard and a split underbody. It also has the elect. primary winches and the interior off a Brewer. I''m fimiliar with the Whitby42 and this ain''t one. Can you fill me in???

Dennis
