Unfortunately , arthritis is limiting the sailing I'm getting on my current
boat , so I'm in the market for a new one , that I can set up for ease of sailing.
I use self furling
headsails now , and they are great , but not all that reliable.
Can anyone advise what is considered the most reliable self furler
Getting the main up (and down) , and reefing.
I'm using a gaff rig now , and although I really love it , its tough on arthritic hands.
On the next boat I'd like to use a RELIABLE self furling
What style ?.
What maker ?.
There is a cruiser here set up with a mainsail
that rolls around the boom (not inside the boom) , and that has proven reliable , for an old bloke single
I'm looking for something that gives ease of handling , and that is reliable.
