Re: Roller Furling issue
This is a very typical yard mistake. Yes, you need more wraps. If it's not fully furled in, when you run out of line, trying to twist the rest in my hand will just start to wrap the line in the wrong direction. The sail needs to be fully deployed, then the extra wraps added. Either that, or you disconnect the line from the furling drum, finish furling by hand twisting, then reattach the line with a couple extra wraps in the correct direction.
