Velly Intelesting. Didn't have a problem with the halyard
on the ProFurl furler
on my TransPac. Halyard
looked the same on arrival as it did when I left. The upper swivel jammed on the extrusion and wouldn't come down. Probably because I ran wing and wing for 13 of the 15 days on the passage
. Would look for a source of the chafing as it doesn't appear to be a universal furler
Going aloft at sea is one those 'interesting' things I haven't had to do. The one halyard I had chafe through was internal and did it inside the mast
. Luckily had a spare halyard and just hoisted the main with that. BTW. that's 'interesting' as in the Chinese Curse, "May you live interesting times."
