Roller Furling for Newport 28

Sorry for the delay, I did get a system and had the genoa altered. We used Stix n' rigin' out of Kemah. After my research, I had planned to go with a Harkin system just because it is one of the most common around. The sailmaker we used to alter the sail told us to avoid CDI because of the plastic parts that are difficult to deal with.

When I spoke to Kevin (at Stix N' Rigin') he recommended a Facnor system because the new Harkin system had changed to a plastic drum from a metal one. The system is great! The sail was about $500 to alter, and the system with a new headstay was $2300. I would say I am a converted skeptic on roller furling.
