Thanks for the help. The attachment point where my jib/ genoa normally is placed is too close to the forestay point for the roller. I do have a ring further back. It's possible that this is what the previous owner used. I suppose that I'll have to make a judgement call as to whether this is strong enough to hold the sails.

Don't remove your headstay.

Anyone know how to set up this roller furler
I found these in my boat. If the picture don't show up, one item is a cylinder with coiled rope and the other is the top connector. Both swivel about their top and bottoms. I'm now sure its a roller furler system. The name "Sapphire" is stenciled on the roller. My boat is a Chrysler 22. Both my jib and genoa have wire in their luffs. I believe its a free flying system as there was no type of extrusion with the unit.I'm unsure if I should find a way to connect the system using my jib/genoa haul up, or connect it directly to where my forestay is connected. Apparently I can't post a picture yet.
