Yep, has to be done in the presence of the furler--you have to run the line around and then splice it. I did this several years back on a Hood furler and it was made much easier by the video that Sailnetter Knothead made to walk me through it. You can see it here

Re: How Do I Replace a Cntinuous Furling Line??

Thanks to all for advice, especially the videos. Over the years I have spliced many 3 strand lines, tapering the splice until it nearly disappeared and finished with a 'whipped' (was going to say 'whipping'...decided against) end.
After viewing the 'you tube' I'm going to pick up a fid and line and surprise my friend....a.k.a. friend with a boat.
Thanks
Jim

this is a good video. I use Samson trophy braid as it is a bit rougher and does not slip on the drum. very easy to splice.
