1472Re: [macgregor19sailboats] garage storage
- Jan 29, 2009
The mast comes in two pieces, designed to be stored inside the boat when garaging since it's longer than most garages. Fastening the two pieces together permanently makes the mast stronger but defeats that feature. However if you're going to remove the mast and stays from the boat anyway for storage, you may be able to hang the mast diagonally from your garage roof or leave it outside. I store mine outside. However the Arizona sun turned the shroud covers black and hard in no time and now I'm thinking of stripping the covers off the shrouds and just using after market shroud covers or just getting new stays(cables that hold up the mast, if you're not a sailor). .

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?
