furling headsails
I am looking at fitting a ronstan jib furler to my RL24 for cruising. Has anyone got experience with this furler? What other furlers are in use?

Fitted a Ronstan furler to our RL24, I had a sail made with a stainless steel luffwire which the furler connected to. Had to remove the usual forestay though. The unit worked very well, used mainly for cruising, makes the forward hands job a lot easier. When sailing in strong winds with it half furled it tended to unroll a bit at the top of the sail which could be a problem.
