robertgharrison Posted July 17, 2010 Report Share Posted July 17, 2010 I have a class jib, a 155, and a drifter. All are traditional hank-on type. Has anyone had experience with a roller furling jib on a J22? I am getting lazy, but I have always wondered (1) if there are significant sail shape compromises with today's roller furling jibs, (2) also in the vein of sail shape, how well do they do when partially furled, and (3) is it difficult to switch between the roller furler and hank-on. I also have a class spinnaker and all the gear, however, with crew limitations, I wouldn't dream of using it. However, I am interested in an asymmetrical. Has anyone used one on a J22? I'm particularly interested in whether some type of bowsprit is needed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
