Re: in mast furling issues?

I've had three boats with in-mast furling since 2001. Vertical battens in this one.

Obviously I'm a fan.

Keep the sail taut, and don't let it flap wildly when furling.

With the big genoa's most new boats have these days, I really don't think there is much of a performance penalty. Trim the sails and keep the bottom clean and you'll be fine.

Enjoy.
