Re: Furler hard to unfurl/furl on genoa

Rosmario - was expereincing same issue with my new-to-me Catalina 27 during my first weeks of sailing with it last summer. Problem was halyard wrap at the top of the furler. At least two remedies - I tried first last summe without much success which was adding a modified piece of cable to get some more distance between the top furler drum and the halyard. Eliminated some but not all occasions of the problem. Going up mast tomorrow to try second remedy which is to add a halyard organizer onto the mast to achieve a recomended 10 degree angle and more controlled distance between my halyard, the forestay and the furler drum.

..with such short seasons for sailing up north I'll be setting mast climbing record I am sure ;')
