I replaced my CDI furler with the mast up - no problem. However, I was also replacing the forestay and so had to get up the mast to do that. So, we had the new forestay fed into the furler foil and then hoisted the whole lot up.
The instructions that come with the CDI furler suggest that it can be installed with the mast up, but (as others have noted) it does depend on the nature of the old furler and the forestay arrangements......
Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.
I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?
