Self-furlers

When I look at those boats with long bowsprits I get the chills. I really like roller furling/reefing.

Like any tool they work best when used right. One of the biggest causes of jams is cobbling caused by not enough tension on the line as the sail is rolled out.

Tell me what kind of furler/reefer that you have an on what boat?
