We had one for 10 years on a 52 ft LH. Never jammed, came close.

Your getting good advise. I think the main trick is to have some tension on the outhaul when winding in. You want the sail to wind tight, not bunch up, that's when the problems occur. Also, the tension needs to pull relatively equally all the way up and down the sail so the top won't bunch or the bottom. That has to do with boom position.

I've even been on the wind a little sometimes to increase tension, you can play with that, not in a strong blow but lighter wind.

Just watch it go in and make sure it's tight, you'll do fine...have a great sail!
