Furling Problems on Beneteau 393

Anyone have suggestions on in mast furling techniques for a Beneteau 393. I seem to have problems with the sail jamming at the second spreader

There are only a few things that would cause your sail to jamb. First is the angle of the boom. Release the vang and set the topping lift so the angle from the boom to the mast is 90 degrees. Secondly is the halyard tension. This needs to be just sufficient to remove all wrinkles from the luff. Too tight or too loose and the sail will not furl properly. Lastly is the boat must be headed into the wind. I have found that the sail will bind if the bow is not into the wind even if the main sheet is released so the boom is parallel with the wind but the wind is across the deck.
You may want to search the pages of the 393 Yahoo group site beneteau393 : Beneteau393 Group
