About to buy a furler... Last minute advice?
We've found a rigger we like, and I am finally gainfully employed so we are about to pull the trigger on a Harken cruising furl 2 installed by our local (reputable) rigger. His quote included replacing the headstay.
I was wondering if anyone had specific advice or suggestions before I give the go-ahead. Any particular way I should lead the furling line? He said he could go along the lifelines, or across the foredeck and along the cabin top (side or top of the cabin). It seems like if we go along the lifelines we end up with a trip-wire at our mid-ships boarding gate, but if we go along the cabin top we have to run the line across the foredeck once, creating a tripping hazard there.
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
