Halyard wrap

Is there a way to unwrap furling sail halyard wrap without going up the mast.
Headsail won't drop when it's wrapped of course.

No, if I could I would drop it and I think I could get the wrap corrected. I am not sure it's wrap, but the sail will not unfurl more than a couple turns. The bottom drum and foil look and act ok so I am surmising the problem is the top of the sail. Tomorro I will get glasses on it.

Do you have a gennaker / spinnaker halyard? They can foul the swivel if they are not hardened. I know.

Binocs might help, unless the halyard's snagged on something. Good luck.

Must be catching. For the first time ever, I had a problem with my furler and suspect I may have really messed something up doing what I know I shouldn't have done.

We did a distance race Saturday afternoon/evening and everything was un eventful until just after we crossed the finish line just at dark. We went to roll in the jib and it stopped after furling in about 2/3's of the sail. I was tired and ready to get back to the mairina so I tried winching it. Stupid I know. Anyway, it didn't budge so I gave up pretty quickly, then thought my way through the problem and brought the sheets forward and manually wrapped the remaining sail by hand. If it had been really windy, we could have done 360's to help but in this case we were able to just push the sail around and follow with the sheets.

My wife went up the mast today and was able to free the spin halyard that had likely started the problem, however it the upper swivel would not come down when we tried it so something is bent or bound up. Most likely as a result of my brief attempt to winch the furler. Since I couldn't furl the sail properly, my wife removed the shackle so we could take the sail off with the swivel stuck at the top of the mast.

I'll call a rigger Monday to see what this is gonna cost me.

FWIW, I had issues with my furler earlier this year, and cranked down on the back stay a few turns and all is good now.

I don't have any experience with anyone up here so I'm just going with Atlantic Spars based on proximity, unless someone has a recommendation here.

The rigger that installed my Profurl is in Deltaville so I doubt he'd be able to come up here and I'm not taking the boat down there.

Edited to add, I do think my headstay is too loose. I noticed a pretty good hook to leward in only about 10 knots apparent. I'd love to rig a backstay adjuster but don't know a way I could do it that would be compatable with a split backstay and not conflict with my bimini.

Using a halyard restrainer?

We installed the new foresail on the new furler last weekend. The halyard wrapped around the foils as we raised the genoa - so naturally we could not unfurl.

FWIW, this weekend we go up the mast to install a Harken halyard restainer . . .
