I purchased a 38' sailboat recently and took her out for a test sail. After the first few times out the jib
was giving issues with a line which runs almost parallel to it from the top of the mast
to the front of the bow. This line was getting wrapped on the jib
while it was being rolled in and out. I removed this line from the bow since it only went to a block at the top of the mast
and back to the deck
. I assumed it was for hoisting the spinnaker
. However, after this another issue appeared. The line attached to the top of the jib furling
is now twisting itself around the top of the stay. See the attached pictures. Anyone have any idea how to prevent this from happening and how to undo it without having to go up the mast? This line runs into the mast. Thanks!
