deniseO30 TY for cking in Merlna!

Reeling in that 153 on my boat even in light air is a chore! The working jib is way easier. Sometimes I do just start it with the winch, then the rest by hand.. gloves help allot. The line in mine is 3/8" I think 7/16" would work but I'm not buying more line this yr! One thing that also helped... I put a new and larger turning block at the cockpit end. when ever a line is around a block it reduces the effort on your part. (like the mainsheet controls)

I really love those $$$ furlers like facnor and profurl. I had a CDI on my hunter 23, it was great. I may get a CDI for my boat anyway as the $ allows. It has an old CDI "reefer" model that's been beat.

ok guys we still love you!

Melrna First of all, I have first dibs on Alex's boat followed by his body. It comes as a package! Get in line Denise! It was a nice try BTW! I hear you on the RF difficulties. What I have found on boats is either the line is to skinny or to fat. The fat ones really scare me on jamming. Line is too big on the drum. The skinny lines I find I don't have the strength to get them started, so I smile pretty and ask for help sometimes.

Giulietta MAx, I know Dehler since one of the very first arrived in 1988. They were absolutely gorgeous but moist where red and white. Today they are not so pretty..oh well

Dehler is very respected in Europe and holds a good value as used boat.

The new ones, are wow........I can't describe...them and the new Grand Soleil are my favorite boats...(by the way, my dream boat is the Swan 45 I bet one day....), anyway..

I know your boat from a Spanish guy had one for 3 months here.

I know about the mast that's why I said that. The new masts are even better.

By the way, your's is tiller, yes?
