Top Down Furlers
« Reply #1 on: June 16, 2019, 09:19:58 AM »
We are thinking about a top down furler for our gennaker. Would care to hear any experiences of installing one on an H46. What make/model was used. Was there enough separation at the masthead and did you need an extended/retractable bowsprit to make it work. At the moment we fly the gennaker from the stemhead with an adjustable tack line and it works fine.
Is "back twist" really an issue and how do you avoid it?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks
