Re: Question about in-boom furling & in-mast furling

I've always thought that in boom seemed to make so much more sense than in mast but having now some experience with in mast and having looked at the size of in boom furlers I'm tending to favour in mast. Furling into the mast gives you a relatively thin tube of sail, into the boom it gets a hell of a lot chunkier.
