Re: Jib Roller Furler
We like to do our own work on our boat, but to install a furler, we had riggers do it. Stuff that will take you hours to figure out, they will have done twenty times already. A good outfit will know the foibles of different manufacturers, and will know what needs to be done to make it work properly. You could spend two full days (an entire weekend!) installing your secondhand unit, and not have it working exactly right, and not know it, and not know why. Having professionals do it avoids these problems. It isn't THAT expensive, considering that you didn't pay full price for a second hand unit.
