So i tried to to change the sail out today, I dropped the halyard and tried to pull the sail down, no luck. I tried like hell to pull it down, I cant get it to budge. I undid the small block at the foot and yanked at the haylard thinking if I could get it to go up i could get it to come down. No luck there either. Any ideas?

stuck sail

Check to see if slide on the foil is stuck .It is were the down haul on the halyard is give it a tape with a hammer if it is.(make sure you pit a line on it before it goes up the foil as the sail comes down)
check out the flexfurl on CDI sight to see how it works http://www.performancepropellers.com...al%2010_06.pdf

Im looking at pictures and I hate to admit, Im not following it. Im gonna go down to the boat tomorrow after noon and give it another good looking at with binoclulars.
Maybe the easiet way is to get a chair/harness and go up the mast to see how it looks.

IN this shot the line on the cleat should go to a small block near the bottom of the foil. The block should connect to a slide in the floil that has a wirerope that goes up to the top of the furler over a sheave and connects to the head of the sail so as the sail comes down the slide goes up .If I am wrong let me know.

That's an old 'Cruising Design' system, had one on my last boat. It has its own halyard built into the system. Out of production now, but I got parts from my (then) local rigger. rigrite in RI.

Its someone elses problem, I sold it on ebay for a 1$ just to not throw it away. It was replaced with a new furler from alado Which so far has been great.
