Yes, Danny, the line is crossed after it leaves the drum. Do I have to keep a lot of pressure on both sides of the line while furling and unfurling? When single-handing, cranking on one side, tailing on the other side, and tailing the sheet to get a reasonably tight furl leaves me one hand short. Admittedly, I’ve only tried it a couple of times so I may not have figured out something obvious. What’s the trick?
Thank you Duane, I’ll let you know what I find...hope that’s the problem!

Hi Kent, when you run the manual furling line do you cross it after it leaves the pulley on the forestay. If not you are losing a big part if the rope/ pulley contact friction.
