TSander is on a distinguished road
I have a 40' Yorktown with a Mariner furler on the jib. The jib is hanked onto the forstay. That's a problem. In a calm wind works great. With a 10-15 knot breeze the bottom half of the jib rolls and knots up and the top half flakes out into the breeze with the whole mess then being in a big knot if you pull hard enough on roller line. I have lived with the mess for last time! Just got back from San Fransico bay. Going to replace the system asap.
