When the sail is being deployed the line comes off the drum and then reverses and begins being taken up by the drum? Am I getting this.
If it is "mid wound" then roll it all the way up plus extra turns to take up several turns of the sheets
also (5-6). Remove line from drum and re-secure the end to the drum.
I think Rick is right.
The drum should turn one way to deploy and one way to furl. I can only think that a larger jib
was put on but he drum was not rewound to accommodate it.
