Re: Need To Hire A Local "Up The Mast" Person
Why don't you climb the mast and investigate?
I use ascenders and a climbing harness to scale the mast.
It appears you could tie a line to the jib halyard, then release it from the furling equipment. I assume either the halyard is jammed or the furling equipment is stuck in place.
