Using a winch to roll in your roller furler
is neither necessary nor advisable. If you have a SNAFU going on, this much mechanical advantage makes it where you can't feel the difference. Manufacturers advise against it as well.
For close quarters or relatively light, (<20 knot) winds, I head
up to luff the headsail for TWO seconds only. Then pull the furling line 2' easily with one hand, as it is routed through a clutch
that holds it until next time. Next I fall off to stay out of irons, and repeat. After several effortless rounds, it is all rolled up.
At sea, in really high winds, I turn to run with the wind on the hind quarter, but blanketed by the main. Now I fly it half way out in front like a spinnaker
, and it rolls in easily... even in 35 knots of wind.
