Roller Reefing Question...
I now have installed a brand spankin' new Harken cruising furler 2 and a new %120 Rolly Tasker sail (compliments of Dirk at national sail supply). I've been owning sailboats for 9+ years and have never had either roller furling or a new sail before. So.....
Now my question. Do I need to slack the halyard when I roll up the sail to avoid damage to the halyard, sail, or furling gear? It would seem to me that if I wanted to roller reef I would already have a bar-taught halyard, so keeping it tight would be easiest, but I wanted to ask so I don't break my new toy...
