Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Procedure to unfurl and fuel the mizzen on a SM

I agree, the same applies when furling. Allowing the boom to rise when furling will lead to a jam up.

Another suggestion...


With in mast furlers it is common to have the upper part of the sail fail to unroll if the boom is allowed to rise too high when unfurling.

If you do not have a vang, try keeping just a little bit of tension on mizzen sheet to keep the boom down just a bit.  I'll bet that gets your sail all the way out.
