Re: Reefing and sail-handling on conventionally rigged Maramu, versus electric furling?

Yes our main does have battens. Profurl claims that the slot between the mast and foil creates added lift and thus speed but I can’t attest to that. For us the main advantages of the furling boom are that the main can be reefed off the wind, and of coarse the sail self-stows when lowered. But I just saw the response from Dennis Johns who has much greater experience than I do and I think he gives you a very good answer!
