I talked with the rigging
guys and explained that we have a roller furler
. He said to go with standard headboard shackle
since there is no way to "quickly" bring down a roller furling
sail like you would with a standard jib
. That saved me some money too, since i am willing to use a shackle
key to undo the furler shackle
if i need to switch to a different sail for any reason.
