My Harken furler
has 2 different modes. One as a roller furler
. The other as a headfoil. The drum can come off, and the swivel is lowered below the feeder (take feeder off, slide swivel down, put feeder back on). Now it is no longer a furler
, but the race sails
that came with my boat which have a long enough luff that the tack is attached to the deck
and the head
goes all the way up to the mast
now fits. When racing
you put up the new jib
before taking down the old. My boat has 2 jib
It also has 2 spinnaker
halyards to do a spinnaker
peel change, but I haven't tried to do that yet.
I haven't tried it, but if I were going to try the twin downwind jib thing, I would raise both sails
at the same time with both sails attached to the swivel. Then you could roll both sails up at the same time.
