Re: Lesson from newbies-how not to install a roller furler
A reply to a few questions:
We did replace the headstay before installing the furler and "we" intend to replace the remaining standing rigging before next season, especially since we turned the backstay into a pretzel. By "we" we mean the yard.
No lubrication required they say.
And as a side note, none of this would have happened if we had called our friend Dave who knows everything.
No one died but Foggybottom did lose a bit of finger which is now stuck between two foils. I had no sympathy. Maybe a little.
Where the heck are we?
