Re: Head sail furling, Heading to S Pacific

HI Kent,

 

I don’t remember if I added another outboard block back near the winch.  I don’t think so.  There should not be much force on the line and I usually pulled it in manually—at least after the initial furling.  The loops over the winch keep it from unfurling again when you stop pulling.   If you are sailing partly furled, you will want to use the small winch.
