A furled Staysail makes it effortless to test the effectiveness of the sail when in marginal conditions since the crew can set or remove sail without leaving their normal positions ﾗthey simply roll or unroll sail.
The staysail can be easily rolled and dropped on deck when preparing for jibing maneuvers. After boat has jibed, the halyard can be cleared and the sail quickly reset. A Harken staysail furling system is designed to be left attached to sail. Store staysail by ﾓcoiling in loosely before bagging. We suggest sheets and furling lines of different colors to minimize confusion when setting sail. This system is sized to handle loads of 2:1 halyards and the multiple stacked races of Torlon ball bearings ensure smooth rotation under load. Fairleads allow the furling line to lead aft to the cockpit.
Note: Smaller line may be required for spinnaker staysails with long foot lengths. There are several Harken accessories available that offer additional options for proper installation, ease of use and maintaining proper functioning of all hardware involved in your furling system.
