Re: Asymmetric and pulpit

Chris,
I'd have thought that on your Contessa a snuffer would be fairly easy use and the furler is probably overkill dollarwise.

On our Van de Stadt 34 we used system same as Fast and it was quite satisfactory. On the bigger boat we are thinking of a furler cos the sail is simply too big to be dragging back and forth from the bow to aft locker. I want the think on deck and out of the way plus I'd rather the weight up front.
