Jib Furler

A dead simple system this, comprising of a Ronstan swivel at the top of the jib, a Harken furling drum on the bow and a twin in-line block to lead the line (3mm Spectra) back to one of the hidden front-bulkhead cleats.

We have never used a 'disc' at the top of the jib, or anything else to prevent the spinnaker halyard getting caught whilst furling the jib. This used to be a major irritation which we always intended to sort out properly, but in fact it doesn't seem to happen anymore as our new jib rolls much more tightly when being furled.
