Kona and I were out the other day and we were flying under full jib. 20 knots plus and the wind keeps building. Time to furl to less than 100%. I pull the furling line but it won't budge. The furler is a year old so it should work fine. Must be tangled inside the drum. If I try to sail back into the slip I will be going way to fast as we have a downwind slip. I could head into the harbor, anchor and try to get the sail down. That's going to be tuff as the sail would be all over me as I anchor. Before I try that, I go on a reach and the boat is sailing herself just fine. I shimmy up to the bow and we are heeled pretty good so it's a bit dangerous to be on the pointy end. I get on my butt and get to the drum. I do my best to loosen the line inside. I head back to the cockpit and she furls without issue. Dodged a big bullet and continued a fine sail and swim in Clipper Cove. Got lucky and had a great day!
