In Topic: Furler explanation

23 March 2017 - 04:19 AM

On my Martin 241 the furler is part of the forestay with the wire between the swivels.  The jib has a zippered luff that goes around the stay with the halyard running inside next to the stay and attached at the bottom drum with a short purchase to adjust luff tension.



In Topic: Any Olson 29 owners?

Congratulations on the new boat, you should have a lot of fun with the O29.  

As for the emergency rudder, I have been talking to others about the best plans and a cassette mounted on the transom with a blade you insert seems to be the way to go lately.  You can put the cassette on anytime, but if you wait until it is needed, putting the cassette on and sliding in the blade is easier than trying to mount a blade onto the gudgeons while bouncing around.
