roller furling

  1. connect roller furling to mast

    Gear & Maintenance
    I came across a note from a surveyor who suggested connecting the head of the roller furler to the mast, thereby freeing up the jib halyard so that it can be used for other things. I have not heard of this, or know how it would be done. Has anyone come across this before? good idea or no?

  6. In mast roller furling gets stuck

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hi, I sail a Beneteau Oceanis 40 with in-mast roller furling system. Problem is, the main often gets "stuck" during the furling process or the unfurling process. Not completely sure about this, but it seems that the "stuck" part happens because of the belly in the sail as it is being reefed...
