Bottom-up furling won't work with headsails featuring a full cut. For those type sails you have to go with a top-down furling arrangement, or use a snuffer.


The windseeker is far from a full cut! It actually has both a luff and leach hollow instead of round. The issue was the furler design and how I had it supported; but it was much easier to set it up for snuffing than it was to troubleshoot the furler.
