Before reading on, please take a moment to fill out this week’s survey so we can share your thoughts and experiences with the Cruising Compass family.
What kind of boat do you sail and cruise?
Many thanks to all readers who took the time to answer last week’s survey on in-mast mainsail furling. 73% do not have in-mast furling; of those who do, 24% have vertical battens in the sail; of those with battens, 50% have short battens only on the leech, while 25% have full length battens and 25% have both full-length and short battens. Of all readers with in-mast furling, 52% have had the mainsail jam while rolling in or out, while 48% have not.
