Where do you keep your boat? Someone might be willing to help you out in person, or at least as a trade for beer/hot chocolate and/or sailing.

I'll get the pole from the crawl space.

I know you were giving him the benifit of the doubt. (how does that phrase go?)
Can you just picture it, boater gets to his boat, jib sail tightly wrapped around the foil, "The Dog from Sailnet says to release this rope thing and it should come down. WHY WONT THIS DAMN SAIL DROP! The DOG said it would."
He is up there tugging and tugging away, still can't get it down.
The sail still rolled up, "I give up, that fricking Dog doesn't know what he's talking about."
Don't worry Speedagent, it all becomes second nature over time, and than we still make mistakes. If you ever need some advise the Dog should be your first contact.

I'm assuming the OP has more brains and common sense than you do...

I can't lower my sail if its still wrapped around the forestay.
I know it maybe understood for most of us, but the OP has expressed is complete newbie status.

A really good solvent is Goof Off. I wouldn't use it on anything but metal as a rule though. It will take off paint quicker than lacquer thinner. I find it takes off stuff that acetone won't. I found it at Home Depot. Probably available in other hardware and home improvement stores. I don't know if it was on this forum or another but I remember someone saying it would even melt 3M 5200. I haven't tried it on that yet. It worked for me on 3M 4200. It might be worth a try but be careful. It will eat what it touches. It is strong. Use it with GOOD ventilation also. Might be worth a try.
