In the interim, hose it down with fresh water, lots of it.

Re: Roller reefing

i have been at this for 45 years now and the first thing I would ck is to make sure you have enough tension on the head shroud, any amount of curve in this shroud, will make reefing very tuff. even in light air. and rotating it by hand is easy but very tuff if it has any curve in it while reefing (straight foil curved shroud does not furl well. Next i would make sure that the furling line is at the proper angle out of the drum (90deg) and last I would ck to see if you have enough angle of the halyard out of the mast to top swivel, not enough angle will stop top swivel from turning. And last but not least make sure you tighten the halyard before trying to furl. May your sails always be full and the sun on yur back---SEABEE
