Re: Lesson from newbies-how not to install a roller furler

Oh my....sounds like a few of my DIY episodes like installing our own Garhauer davits in 103 degree chessie heat.

I know its too late, but I would have suggested you replace the forestay with new before putting the furler pieces on. Whens the last time the standing riggings was replaced?
