Re: I think I stuffed my furler. What do you think?

Thanks celenoglu but I'm not sure that's the case with my old school setup. I think with this old furler the halyard is integral to the furler head and returns back down the furler extrusion and is...

Re: I think I stuffed my furler. What do you think?

Thanks Ritchard. I looked into it but decided to stay with wire. I'll finish my blog post on the re-rig and post it here. Managed to get keep the old furler (thank goodness - that would have added...

Re: do you like this video?

Great editing. I agree with Aver, but some nice shots and transitions there.

Re: Did someone say flipper?

That is awesome - gave me shivers. I would love to see that! I suppose the more time I spend on the water, the higher my chances are. One thing's for sure - it won't happen in my lounge room!

Re: Knock Down!

And that's why I don't use a spinaker. I'm sure it's a blast though.

Re: I created an app to help sailing beginners with the basics!

Hmmm... maybe I should make everyone who comes aboard (as social crew) download and work their way through this. I've discovered that asking them if they know how to do something can be meaningless....

Sydney to Bateman's Bay, Australia.

A bit of coastal cruising helping a friend deliver his new yacht. Four easy days sailing downwind and a short, heavy squall with lightning. Was a great trip.

Video could have been half the length...

Re: I think I stuffed my furler. What do you think?

Thanks everyone. Spin and jib halyards backing up forestay now. Don't tell anyone, but the standing rigging is 30 years old! (I've only had her 18 months) Time to spend a few b.o.a.t. dollars on...

Re: I think I stuffed my furler. What do you think?

You may be right smj (and gladrags1); it does look suspiciously like that, doesn't it. That would also explain the 'spring-like' effect if a couple of strands have come loose and have become wound...

I think I stuffed my furler. What do you think?
