second furler

I am adding a furler to the Solent Stay. Couple of questions; what will I be doing with the Genoa sheet when flying the jib? I'm thinking trouble and chafe if I don't go fwd and secure things . Is that so? Second, should both furling lines be on the same side of the boat?

We run a furling line down either side, so that the secondary winches are both available if needed. Works well.

Guy, we just leave some slack in the Genoa sheets when using the Solent. Have not observed any chafe issues at all. Looks a bit sloppy, though!

If you had to go forward to secure the sheets it would reduce the advantage of the furler on the Solent... might as well hoist a hank-on sail!

Cheers,

Jim
