Bullseyes should be fine for the intermediate
fairleads that do not deflect the line much.
It may be better to have a ball bearing block
at the bow where the furling line will be deflected
at some angle to guide it on to the drum.
It is also a good idea to use a small ratchet
block near the stern to control the line.
