Re: Spinnaker halyard for a furling jib??

Congrats on the new to you boat
you could but I would not furl the sail, the haylard might get wrapped around the headstay because the angle of the haylard is about the same as the headstay. the jib haylard needs to be at a 15 degree angle to the forstay and short ( between sail head and sheeve ) so it does not wrap on the forestay when you furl
