Re: In-mast furler advice

We have a 1999 Beneteau 352 with inmast furler and we haven't had any problems the past two years. I use the topping lift to keep the boom just slightly above level as suggested. Unfurling is...

There was a discussion on our dock the other evening, as the realization that the end of summer sailing season was inevitable. Among those with in-mast mainsail furlers the question was whether to...
