I'm sailing an Iain Oughtred Grey Seal "Huon Seal" out of Portland
Its a beautiful little boat , and pretty capable in the waters around here.
But I'm suffering from rheumatoid arthritis , and at times I find it impossible to sail her.
I could change the rig , put on winches etc , but that would spoil her character and charm.
I'll probably sell her , and buy something more appropriate to me , in this condition.
So , I'm trying to figure the easiest way to sail , with a reliable rig.
I'm using self furling
headsails now , and will in the future , but need to find the most reliable system.
And so to mainsail furling
and reefing , what is the easiest , most reliable system ?.
Any recommendations ?.
