Re: Genny sleeve

I guess my question is don't you still have to go out on the sprite to raise the sock? Isn't raising the sock more work than generally stuffing a sail into a bag? It seems like more work and yet another added expense to roller furling. What about in a super rolly anchorage like Descanso or at sea? Taking the sumbrella off the sail will reduce quite a bit of weight but you still are flying in general a one size fits all sail which will rarely fit the bill. I'm not pushing pro or con on roller furling just asking if this isn't yet another job to perform before and after every trip.
