BigZ is on a distinguished road
Don't forget that you'll have to add costs to convert the chosen sail.

travlineasy will become famous soon enough
Interesting. I never had a failure in five years of extensive use in Chesapeake Bay, with 60 to 70 trips a year. And, with the Alado roller furling system I've used less than the full jib on many, many occasions and never had a problem. Also, because the way the foils are set up on this particular system, and the installation procedure, you can install, or remove the entire system in less than a half hour, therefore, unstepping the mast is a piece of cake. During a gale I lost my forestay, bent a few foils, and had no trouble straightening them using a rubber mallet with a rubber pad placed beneath the bent area of the foils. The entire repair procedure took about an hour, the forestay was replaced, the system was quickly reinstalled and an hour later we were sailing again. Some folks are traditionalists and swear by hank-on jibs. Me, I'll never, never go back to a hank-on jib, if for no other reason, safety.

Good luck on whatever you decide upon,

Gary
