Re: Spinnaker halyard for a furling jib??
I'm with GeorgesB and the rest of the naysayers on this topic.
We 'accidentally' raised our jib using the spinnaker halyard and our Furlex 101 top unit would not deploy to the top of the stay and got jammed about 3/4 of the way up. PITA to recover from and potentially very bad for your jib if it is left to flog for too long. Not just mildly dangerous but embarrassing too.
