I had the same problem last year. Line kept jamming on the drum. The older line was swollen and rough so it wouldn't wrap well and jammed. A new line fixed that problem.I recently had the same issue as to binding when furling the jib. I found that by replacing my line, it resolved the issue. In my case, the old line was worn and rough and slightly expanded. When rolling in the sail, with the old line, it would bind at a point when there was still two feet of jib still open.
I have a halyard swivel on a Furlex 100-S jib sail that appears to be hanging up and not always allowing furl and unfurl. Any suggestions on cause and/or remedy?
I believe this is my problem, and have the sleeves ordered from Selden. Any advice on how to replace them?The halyard swivel on the Furlex 100s has 2 plastic half sleeves that act as a bushing in the top of the swivel. If you, or anyone, has ever lowered the swivel down over the sail loader, the loaded will hit the sleeves and these plastic sleeves will pop out. This has happened to me twice. The first time one piece landed on the deck, the other overboard. See page 5 of the Furlex 100s parts list (has sketches of swivel - sleeves are item A12) http://www.marlow-hunter.com/export/Vendor-Manuals/Furling 100 S Selden . To check if yours are missing, carefully lower swivel and look in the top, these are black plastic half sleeves that keep the swivel rotating smoothly. If yours are missing, they are cheap from Selden, but a pain to slip in. I keep an extra set of sleeves now and always put a clamp above the sail loader to keep the swivel from lowering too much. Good luck.
