New here

Hi , MY wife and I are in the early stages of construction for our 12m Catamaran , which we intend to sail through out SE Asia and the pacific over the next few years .
I would like to hear from people who have experience with in boom furling systems , or maybe directed to existing threads to research their benefits and or downfalls .
I have been particularly interested in a New Zealand product "Leisure Furl".
Appreciate any input
regards Lance

Welcome Lance...I'm sure you will find most of your answers here...Aloha
