Video: A hank-on headsail furler?

Sailing trip from Charleston to St Thomas - YouTube

Check out the video of a big beast of a boat attempting to sail from Charleson SC to St. Thomas. A good enough video on it's own, with good narrative, good camera work, and well, they're out there doing it.

I noticed that between 10:30 and 11:30 you get a good look at their headsail furling unit. It appears to be a furler with a hanked on sail! Check out 11:15 for a really good look.

Anyone care to identify? Could it be the piece of gear that ends the furler vs hanked-on debate once and for all???


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
