JimCate's got it close, but bass ackwards. Get a furling
line with a Spectra core
, & then for the length of line from the drum, back to the cockpit
, strip the cover off of the line. Properly tapering the cover into the core, & lock stitching it together of course. That should give you more room on the drum, as well as a plenty strong furling line. Particularly as Spectra's pretty much immune to UV.
If you need more details on this mod., I answered another post a good while back about folks having trouble getting tight wraps on their furler
. Just look back through what I wrote.
