Re: Furling very difficult

If the upper swivel is binding because the halyard is twisting then your halyard may not be tight enough. You don't want halyard wrap at the masthead.

Re: Furling very difficult

Salty, Try keeping the sheet on a winch with a turn or two so you can use one hand to let that out as you crank in the furling line led to another winch. Should be easy to do singlehanded if both lines are around a winch
