Amazing, I have always thought the exact same thing about reefed roller furling jibs
and I''m too inexperienced to know what I''m talking about. Let''s see, decide between living and good sail shape. Well hmmmm...
However, this leads me to a question of my own (refer to "inexperienced" comment above). My Hunter 26, which I purchased used, came equipped with CDI roller furling
. The only thing I use the jib
halyard for is raising and lowering the mast; it is not attached to the jib
in any way, nor did the previous owner (not a pro himself) have it attached to the jib
. Is that correct? I am not in a position to change jibs at the moment, not having a second jib, but I still want to have my boat rigged correctly.
