one problem comes to mind. if and it is an if but does happen. If the furling line parts as has hapened to me you need to reload the line on the drum. to do this you need to hand roll the heady onto the furler, remove the genoa sheets and keep rolling until the required number of turns are loaded, re-attach the sheets. All this while working on the fore deck and probably in shite weather. The knot is going to be about 8 foot above deck.
