My thinking of the whole mast furling thing changed in last weeks 190 Around Long Island Race



We start at 5:20 PM Thursday and sail off into the night towards Montalk with the other 35' Spinnaker boats and are normal assortment of 50 lines in the cockpit and 12 sail changes over the next 24 hours till we Pass plum-gut and head west on Long Island Sound

So there was the normal wind/no-wind and what pulls up on and easy reaching leg 100 miles later a Catalina 445 with roller everything in the cruise division

And i gotta say the new furling mains look pretty dam good

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
