Re: Genoa furler

Hi Rob;

 

I cannot help on the sequence needed to drop the Genoa forestay, as we have not had to remove it on our 54. However, I would caution that it requires a sequence of adjustments to ensure the rig is not compromised. I would suggest that you proceed with caution and with some professional assistance, if you have never done this before. We had our shrouds replaced at the main. Our rigger Nicky, did not want t attempt changing the entire standing rigging without being in a more controlled environment, because of this concern.

 

Happy Sailing;

Hi All

I'm just about to replace my forestay and need to 'drop' the Genoa furler.  Can someone please offer me advice on how to do it?
