Re: New to in Mast Furling Couple of Questions

Thanks Capta, the reefing method is what I was thinking but thanks for validating that thought and thanks for the advice on moving slowly and never forcing, we have been on the boat once, will be closing on it September 1st, the current owner reiterated the same instruction, head to 5* port into the wind when furling in the main, that way it stays in line with the furling rig slot and take your time. He stated if you don't do that, you will have issues, seemed easy enough.

Would the head sail work the same way? roll out as much as you want? as long as one secured the furling line.
