Re: single vs continuous line furling
I use a continuous line furler on my Catalina 27. We regularly sail in winds up to 40 knots and use it for reefing all the time. Never had a slip and it works great for reefing.
Only issue I have ever had was when I had a lot of sail out and the wind suddenly picked up (maybe from 25 to 40). I could not reef the sail due to the force on the sail. No matter how hard I pulled the line, nothing happened. I finally had to go forward and lay at the base of the unit and pull there. Then it worked, but was still hard.
