Sailcoate in the furler track can make all the difference. Hard to grease the grooves once the mast is up tho. My jibs go up full hoist by hand at the beginning of the season, by midseason I need to resort to winch power for the last third or so...So needing more than hand power is not an uncommon syndrome. But as advised be sure that nothing is fouled...
