Roller Furling problems

I have a 1978 CT42'' Ketch with roller furling on the head sail and cutter sail. Twice I have had the furling line come loose from the drum (OLD HOOD SYSTEM)and I had to re-wrap the line with the drum fixed in place while underway. Is there a way to make the drum free wheel rather than hand wrap the intire line?

The real question is why did the line come loose. Did it break or did the knot slip? This should not ever happen. If it comes off re-wraping it is the only way to put it back on.

Roller Furling problems

True enough, first reason, old line on boat when I bought it broke at drum, second time lack of experience with furlers and tied an improper knot. But the original Q was answered, Thanks
