Capteos,

Not sure we have the same system....I'm not sure who made mine, but it sounds similar, yet different. I do not recall having any trouble with the segments lining up. I do recall thinking they seemed flimsy until I got the furling up and tensioned the stays and shrouds.

My segments were never taken apart????....I didn't know they came apart...in fact I was very careful to not stress the segments where they met when I handled it for fear of it breaking. The long metal segments were together and secured to the the side of the mast, which was down when I purchased the boat.

I do have to play the sail up and down sometimes to get onto the next segment, so I guess they do not line up exact. But it doesn't take me more than 5 minutes to thread the foresail into the track.

As you can probably tell, I don't have much furling knowledge. You may want to expand the knowledge pool in another forum.

Ron
