Does anybody know of a place where I could be an inexpensive roller furling jib system?
I'm new to sailing, and learning much everyday I'm on the lake, but I still haven't figured out why furling systems are so darned expensive! Sure, I know well-engineered, machined gear is expensive, but crow! These seem simple in design and construct. Why the hefty price?
