Actually that is not usually a good thing! Too much halyard tension moves draft of sail too far forward. It also can over stretch the sail. For furling sails, best to put them up just tight. Unless they are already blown out

Personally, I have not experienced that.

It could be, otherwise not sure how he could have mast up and only just have found the drum! Any foils would need the drum to support them and he did not mention foils.

Anyway, he needs to get back with more info and pics.
It was actually a 700, I must've hit the wrong key when posting. I was missing the swivel, i was speaking with someone and we got one ordered... pricey little thing! Everything got mounted a-ok so that is one less problem on then boat.
