Oh man hopefully that doesn't happen but as of now I am just happy to have a working furling unit as well as bright and shiny new standing rigging.

Oh PS I just replaced my shaft packing with GORE GFO based off your site and posts and my shaft problems after packing with PTFE flax 3 weeks ago are gone! Thanks for that.
