One other thing, check your backstay tension. Correlates to the headstay tension of which btrayfors spoke.

Patience and diligence will be rewarded...MGM

Thanks.
I noticed my backstay was loose after I finished fighting with my rurler the other day. I didn't relate the two, but it makes sense.

In 10 kts of wind or more, I always head downwind before furling so that the main blankets the headsail. Never had any problem, even in 20+ kts.

It's on top of page 4. I discovered this little item while watching Brion Toss's DVD on inspecting your rigging. Looks like a great little solution.
