Re: Should a Roller Furler be Hard?

We had exactly the same issue on our Sadler 25. Being new to furling systems, we had no idea how they were supposed to work, up to the point where we were winching the furling line!

It's a tough one.
I always ensure there's enough PFDs for all onboard, and those who wish may wear one. Children under 13 will wear one.
