In Mast Furler


Jon Aswad
 

Does anyone know if there is a way to stop the internal furler from banging inside the mast when the sail is not installed?

Hi Jon,

Yes that is very annoying isn't it?  I tied a rope onto the slide that the head of the sail attaches to and hoisted it halfway up then used the roller to wrap the rope around the mandril as much as possible. It stopped most of the clanking but it's not perfect...

Regards,
Nick.

Raise the halyard to mid mast and keep tension on the outhaul. Be sure to attach a line so you can pull it down easily.
