Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] New sails

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>

If I understand you correctly, to hoist the second sail, you will have a block somehow attached to the swivel with a continuous loop halyard that you will somehow tie off in the top of the furler.

That block is going to remain stationary while the foil and the sail turn while furling and unfurling. If I understand you correctly, I see wrapping of that halyard around the foil and between the block and the top of the sail and probably halyard failure.

Maybe you could attach the block to the foil somehow, but I see big problems there.

Maybe I don't understand you.

   Well I can think of only two possible options:

1.  He didn’t think of it.
2.  He did think of it and decided it was bad idea, in which case I may have some details on why after doing some testing..

   I think that it will work and so far cannot think of a good reason not to give it a try.
 If you forsee a problem with this idea,  let me know.

I have one question. I wonder why Henri Amel did NOT do it that way?
