Cool. Nice boat. I talked my way onboard once.
Well taken care of when she was in our marina. Owned by a nice older couple who never seemed to sail her much.
Sail her well!

Out of Edmonds, right?
Congratulations, and welcome to Sailnet!

Once the sail is unfurled, you can ease the halyard and pull the sail down and out of the foil.

I'm still relatively new to sailing and am hoping to learn from the collective wisdom here. I recently purchased Aotea, a 1990 Pacific Seacraft Dana 24. One of the things that is new to me with this boat is roller furling. It comes with a Harken Unit 0 roller furling system. I've read the specs but cannot exactly tell from them if it is possible to lower the sail (once unfurled) in order to inspect and maintain the halyard swivel. Any thoughts?
