1469Re: [macgregor19sailboats] Furler or Not
- Jan 29, 2009Hi Richard,I wish I could tell you more but I have only used my 19 twice. Then winter set in and I'm in the process of eye surgery. So far I think the boat does a reasonable job of sailing and powering. It might take a while to get used to tiller steering at high speed, though. I haven't been in anything but small lake conditions with little wind, so I have no experience otherwise in this boat. If it is anything like the other MacGregors I have had, it should do fine.Maybe some others on the list can tell you more. So far I would say 'GO FOR IT".

Subject: [macgregor19sailboa ts] Furler or Not
I am seriously considering adding a CDI FF2 furler to my 19. Probably
put the Genoa on it. A few questions:
Do the jib sheets for the genoa go outside the side stays? Mine have
turning blocks and I am only guessing how to set it up. Will the
sheets work properly with a furler? Suggestions?
Do furlers work ok on the 19? What things should I consider?
Is there plenty of room on the foredeck for the furler drum?
Who has the best price on CDI furlers?
