No problems whatever.. mind.. I've no aversion to wandering up fwd to furl it up close and personal.
Its easy enough to set up a little double block fwd as a feed for a better angle.. but from my viewpoint for a quick remove/raise sail the benefits of a small wheel with short line, as opposed to a clumpy drum and long line up fwd are
obvious..
If its gonna be a permanent fit like some small mono's/cats with bowsprits.. go for the drum
Horse's for course's.
