Re: downwind sail for PSC31

THe time it takes to set up and take down my roller furler vs. the time it takes to set up and take down my Asym.

The furler for your head sail is not the same as a furler for an asymmetric...

I think we've ditched the idea of a furling asymmetric, though that was in my original post. Someone told me that to add a third furler up front, you have to move the other two furling units back in addition to extending the bowsprit, which I don't even have at the moment.

Someone is misguiding you...

It is true that to use a asymmetric furler you need some room between the tack point for the asymmetric and the headstay (in front of the foremost stay/ furler). So if your headstay is terminated at the end of the boat (bowsprit/stem) you need add or extend the bowsprit.

But moving the existing ones - why?

Wouldn't I need to either extend the top of the mast too or lower the other halyards (not happening) to accommodate another furler?

This is basically a spinnaker halyard problem. You will have it with any spinnaker arrangement unless you are going to use the same halyard for your genoa and spinnaker.

The normal solution is to install a Spinnaker Bail at the masthead. If you have the LeFiell mast you can get one here:

Masthead Assemblies

And using the genoa halyard is not a good idea.

tack of the same sail


The furler on the bowsprit without sail, the 1:2 tack line led back to the cabin top winch so I can adjust the tack hight and pull the furler out.
The sail get attached to the furler before the furler is attached to the tackline.

Re: downwind sail for PSC31

I fly mine from the same halyard as my Genoa for now. I will add spinnaker halyard next time I take down the mast.

You can see pictures here if you are interested.
