Roller Reefing

Jean Bourgeois

Has there ever been a group buy for a Roller Reefing system for the Yankee? What are the systems that work best in your opinion and why? I'll soon be looking for one, so thanks for your help.

Jay Bietz

I purchased a Furlex system from Kern and installed it my self -- I'm happy with the unit after 4 years or so - though I'm not a heavy duty sailor.

You might get off with less expense if you used roller furling rather than roller reefing as I doubt there's ever a need to reef the yankee (I don't think they generally come with reefing points either). People hate the old Mariners - I still use mine and like it a lot because hank-on sails make changes easier. When the day comes to replace them, I'll probably use the Facnor wire furlers because I'm sold on hanked headsails--- see 109%2Ca,http://www.facnor.com/uk/main.asp?url=http://www.facnor.com/uk/products/ our_products/default.asp&f=2,67,,109,a
