Dang furler

May 1, 2015

We had problems with the jib furling roller overriding.  For those non sailors, that means when they tried to roll up the front sail, a big nasty mess got made of the ropes getting all knotted up.  It was hard to get the ropes all untwisted.  Same thing happened to Steve aboard Saltydog on the Baja Haha run to Mexico.  The underlying problem is the way the deck lines are rigged – they don’t lead into the roller furling in an optimal way.  But we were able to get it fixed and get back underway.
