Leisure Furl

I am interested in an apparently otherwise satisfactory boat that has a Leisure Furl mainsail. I would prefer what is sometimes called a "classical" mast. I''ve thought that perhaps in the evaluation, I could include the cost of replacing the sail and the boom. However, Leisure Furl also requires a rather large hole to be drilled in the mast. Briefly, should I also include the cost of mast, which I think would be prohibative.

Altenatively, does anyone have experience with Liesure Furl, and think I might come to learn to love or least accept a Leisure Furl. I get the impression that furling and unfurling a Leisure Furl sail might best be handled with a powered winch, and that alone would be a show stopper for me.

BTW, I''ve read the Practical Sailor articles.

Unless you have a good sailmaker, who can give you advise how to change the leisure furl system - don't buy it.

My experience with Leisure Furl and the support is pretty bad

Mohea-

Again, you're replying to a thread that is OVER THREE YEARS OLD. Not exactly useful.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
