In light air we hoist snake in front of the jib (our rig is fractional so there's room), and then unfurl at our leisure. If the wind pipes up, we furl the code 0, unfurl the jib, and keep going. We drop the snake again, at our leisure, mostly back on the hook at the end of the day. =
Can you jibe the boat with the code 0 out or do you furl, jibe then unfurl?
What about sheets for the code 0 are they on deck at all times so you have two sets of sheets out all the time?

What model furler are you using for the code 0?
