Amel vs others

I now have over 19,000 miles on my amel.
i have had no problems with the in mast furling.

i can understand how a delivery captain can have problems with the system as they are unfamiliar with it. i have seen crew who are unfamiliar with the system almost cause the sail to bunch up insude the mast by furling in one direction then the other without having the sail all the way out.

if you know what you are doing , you will have no problems. if you do there is a manual override.
