I am in the process of buying a new staysail and am wondering if I should go for roller furling. Having sailed on boats with RF staysails, I appreciate not having to go forward in blustery weather (in the dark) to set, strike or reef the staysail.

I know that there are some cons to this situation like the genoa sheets chafing on the staysail, but am anxious to hear all opinions on the topic.

Thanks,
Jim

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
