This isn't a thread that in-mast furling is terrible and you shouldn't use it. I'm just trying to understand the advantages (if any) of electric in-mast furling when I'll have electric winches.
I guess the question is if you have use for an electric winch
beyond furling your main. An electric main furler
is only good for that purpose where an electric winch
could be used for many functions if you have the need. Mainsheet possibly? Getting you dinghy
on your foredeck for passages?
That's the biggest difference I can think of.
