Re: Roller Furling
Your luff tape slots begin right at that chromed part that your swivel is resting on in the picture. So attach the tack to the shackle on top of the drum, feed the luff (from the head) through the prefeeder, into the slot and then attach the lower shackle on the swivel head. Connect your halyard to the upper shackle on the swivel and hoist away!
