Oh, they really do that? Interesting concept and would definitely work at least once...

Ok. found some information on the zippered headsail also called a bonneted jib. It seems Larry and Lin Pardey invented or at least improved on the idea, details can be found in their book "Cost Conscious Cruiser: Champagne Cruising on a Beer Budget" . I don't know why they are so against roller furlers, furlers rock. The one I saw was on a very pretty Gaff in the Scarborough classic about 4 years ago.

Interesting find, thanks!
I find a lot of their ideas to be very appealing. I like simplicity, small size, and of course spending as little as possible. But a lot of times new technology has some obvious advantages, like roller furling head sails. If I ever have a boat with a cutter rig I would like to have one furling head sail, and one hank on, for added versatility and redundancy.

Re: Can you convert a hank on

I've never seen the zippers but read of them, from a number of the big names in cruising authors, back when "author" meant "paper".

I would expect that unless your foresail was fairly heavy to start with, high wind would still destroy the shape of what was left. I think they were starting with fairly heavy dacron 100's to work with.
