I have been rigging
a simple preventer for the main using a line through a block attached to the port centre mooring
cleat and back to the winch
at the helm
but I am getting a lot of gelcoat
wear on the cabin
top. Ditto when running a barber hauler for the genoa
on port side am also getting a lot of wear.
Anybody got any good solutions?
Also I find the FP supplied furler
for the gennaker
a nightmare - the furling
line seems to want to jump out of the furler
, coil around the furler or anything else it can get near and generally make furling
a hazardous pastime, usually when it has just started blowing. Have thought about replacing it with a continuous line furler but they are expensive. I added a small block attached to the seagull striker cable to direct the line onto the furler but this has not completely solved
the problem. Anyone got any ideas?
PS why is it that the Mahe owners are so damn good about posting
such great information? Come on Lipari
owners - we can do it too!
