Roller Furling

Finally got the flexible roller furling installed. No pictures yet as I keep forgetting to bring the daughters camera to the marina. I constructed a 15" extension for the bottom of the furling drum to raise the sail off the deck. This also gives me a small viewing window which I never had with the Genoa. With the roller furling raised all I have to do is crouch a bit and see whats ahead of me, I didn't have that luxury before. I even remembered, after some experimenting, how to tie a bowline for the sheets. I am sooo nautical:) Special thanks to Vic who was a great help with the install. I'll add photos later.
