Woulnt touch in boom furling with a bargepole.mime which came with boat fell apart in a force 6 in the tide rip off point of ayre on a pitch black night with a large ship bearig down on us. eventualy managed to lasso the end of the roller and get it all lashed down but not without a few hairy moments.still better than in mast as if they fail your stuffed . have now fitted a slab reefing,loose footed main with lazyjacks and stack pack .sets much better also.
