How do you secure Code 0 furling line?

I'm hoping to run a Code 0 on a bottom up furler this season. One thing I haven't been able to find any info on, is what do you do with the end of the continuous line furler once the sail is furled? How do most people secure it so the sail doesn't unfurl?

Re: How do you secure Code 0 furling line?

Iím assuming you have an endless line (the ends are spliced together) that runs back along the deck and turns back through a floating block? If so, then the easiest way to secure the furling line is to fix a long bungee to the block to keep the line taut. The bungee should be long enough so that you can pull the furling line forward and put a wrap around a midship cleat. That will be enough to keep the line from moving.

Ah, I like the midship cleat idea. Thanks!

Re: How do you secure Code 0 furling line?

another option is there is usually a way of passing a line or a pin through the actual furling sheeve, so you lock the sheeve up...rather than the furling line

this of course assumes that you can reach the end of the prodder without too much drama !

Selden do a 10 and 12mm double block cleating system for endless line furlers - 405-001-40r and 406-001-40r

I have used this, works well, also used to use a cleat.

Looks promising! I'd probably still use the midship cleat idea, on top of the cam cleat.

Re: How do you secure Code 0 furling line?

I have a double stopper on my code 0 furling line to apply friction on the furling drum. But I also take the code 0 down when not in use.

What do you mean by double stopper? Where is it located?

Itís a twin cam, twin block fitting. I have a snap shackle on it and I attach it to a d ring in my deck near the cockpit. But it could also attach to a stanchion. It looks like this:

A normal cleat works for me. Super simple and cheap.

Ah, that's what Mattzilla mentioned. Looks pretty promising. Does it work well? I like that it seems like it would redirect the loop towards the cockpit, and maybe even a winch, if you need help furling.

Works great in my case. The cams are absolutely necessary for me to single hand my asymmetric. Otherwise the furling line slips on the furler and the sail comes shooting back out when the wind catches it. The D ring I hook it to is approximately perpendicular to a winch so that makes furling an absolute breeze. I also have a second twin block lead (without cams) that I put around mid-ship to lead the furling loop aft without snags or chafe.

Re: How do you secure Code 0 furling line?

I have essentially that setup on a Hunter 38. The placement of the fairleads at the furling drum end is essential. I cannot stress that enough, and it is going to be trial and error.

Put them in the wrong place and you'll potentially get issues that turn the furler into an automatic back wrapping device.

On my boat from the fairleads back I don't need to use any others, ie it's a straight run. I made a heavy bungee strop with a loop, and a short dyneema soft shackle. So the aft end of the the continuous furling line just runs through a 3rd small block that is attached to the traveler arch via the bungee and the soft shackle (on a hunter, but a toe rail or a stanchion base would work fine).

The bungee gives a little stretch but keeps tension on the furling line at all times, which is critical for my crappy CDI furler that lacks any sort of cage to keep the line on the drum. It also allows me to take a turn around a handy horn cleat when I want to secure it, and then flip it off the cleat when I want to deploy/retreive the sail.

Re: How do you secure Code 0 furling line?

We just use a soft shackle as the temporary brake to keep it from unfurling. If you leave it hoisted when not in use for extended periods I wouldnít recommend this because of chafe issues. But itís super simple and easy if it does fit your use needs.

Re: How do you secure Code 0 furling line?

The other thing I do to prevent initial unfurling, flapping, etc is to tie 4 or 5 gaskets of breakable yarn around the furled sail as I lower it. When raised the next time the yarn holds the sail tightly until a good yank on the the sheet breaks the yarn.
