Re: Storing Roller Furler Headstay
Great idea, Hylyte, in addition it could be that one or more of the foil sections isn't perfectly aligned, or perhaps the spinn pole smacked it a time of two and 'pinched off' the slot a bit causing extra drag and resistance.
Does seem a shame to give up the furling option for cruising by going to a tuffluff.
