Re: Jib furler is hard to furl since putting up new sail...ideas?
It could also have to do with the shorter hoist on the new sail. There is more halyard between the mast exit and the swivel, and it will be at a shallower angle, more parallel to the forestay, and as result it could twist around the forestay.
Exactly what I was thinking -- you have a halyard wrap on the forestay.
