How useful is code zero/gennaker furler?
The furler on my nelson/merek 43 c/c was destroyed in katrina. I'm going to replace it and put the new furler closer to the deck by altering the bow pulpit, starting it astern the furler. Been reading about sometimes if you are in a region with a good number of light air days (New Orleans) using a gennaker,drifter type of sail has it s advantages. Adding a bow sprit carbon, aluminum material is a viable option and adding one of the new code zero/gennaker furlers. If this is to be added, how far in front of the headstay should the gennaker furler be? Is this a viable sail plan? Thanks for any input on this. I visit this site daily, some pretty knowledgable salts here. O K fire away.
