Alan, she's a fractional rig and the forestay is actually quite taut. What you are talking about is likely a Code 0 on a dedicated continuous line furler.

Alan,

My Dragonfly 1000 is rigged the same way as that f boat.
The jib is the middle sail in the above pix.
The drifter/reacher is furled on its own wire luff and held up by a halyard.
The whole thing is dropped on deck and / or stored in an ama compartment when flying a chute.

Steve:

How do those code zero furlers work? I am considering getting one for my asymetrical kite Looks tempting. I think I would have to get a new halyard for the 2 to 1 purchase.

I suggest you read part of this thread where the different types of furling are discussed, i.e. a flat sail like a Code 0 versus a fuller type sail that needs something to furl around.

Look here: http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...a-3913-25.html

Alan
