Re: I think I stuffed my furler. What do you think?

Thanks everyone. Spin and jib halyards backing up forestay now. Don't tell anyone, but the standing rigging is 30 years old! (I've only had her 18 months) Time to spend a few b.o.a.t. dollars on replacing that.

And yes, I will take the mast down at the same time, repaint it, fix the masthead light and wind instrument, replace the lights with LEDs, rerun the cables and stop them from clanking inside the mast! Seems I won't be sailing for a little while.

Re: I think I stuffed my furler. What do you think?

If you're starting a campaign of replacing the standing rigging, you might consider doing it with superline instead of wire rope - except perhaps your forestay. I plan to make this change over the next couple of seasons, my wire rope is getting pretty long in the tooth. Lots of info on this on the Colligo marine website.
