Something I didn't mention in my previous post; I have done a fair bit of sailing on a boat with in-mast furling and on the boat with lazyjacks that I mentioned.

I'd take even the less than optimized lazyjacks any day over the in-mast furling. Easier to use, better sail shape and area, no jamming in the mast, WAY cheaper - it's no contest in every way.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
