I ended up with CDI because of the internal halyard. When beating, I didn't need the extra noise of a flapping halyard the full length of the forestay.
I'm with jimq26. I actually bought the CDI furler for budget reasons. Our local agent in Annapolis is excellent and this was further incentive. In addition, CDIs have a good reputation with my friendly local marine services guy who recommended it. I have been very pleased with it so far.

Incidentally, I find it hard to believe that some posters get so hot under the collar about a ****in' furler. Get a life, guys!!


Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?
