Re: single vs continuous line furling

On my gal's Pearson26 we have a continuous line (old hood IIRC). We hate it. The line always jumps the wheel and jams or the line comes completely out. It does work a bit better if there is back pressure, however it still screws up. We have not had one sail where this does not happen.

At first I thought it was because the line diameter was to small. So I've tried two other diameters. No bueno.

The first chance we get to convert to a single line drum it will happen. Although it's pretty old and I'm not sure what to even (or where to) get a conversion.

Just my 2c :-)

Re: single vs continuous line furling

Totally agree with Mr Canada . Love my old Hood mine was getting old and I just refurbished it for about $100 Looks good for another 10 years.

The continuous lines is long enough to end next to steering wheel

Very easy to handle . Line will not mess in drum if you have a couple of guides on your stanchions especially closer to the drum .
Should not unfurl if you put some tension on the line and cleat it when at the mooring.
