I'm not the one to help but I noticed no one else is responding. Post pictures along with the boat brand and model and the furler brand and model. Hopefully some here will be able to help.

Welcome to the forum and to sailing!

You might want to post this on Ask All sailors, too.

Re:just wondering

Not sure about the main furling. but on my 8.3 with a jib furling there is only one line going to the furlier. The line is not wound up when the jib is not in use but when a sheet is pulled, opening the jib, the line is rolled up so that when you want to furl the jib you just up on the furling line which then raps up you jib. There are sometimes when the furling was wound in the wrong direction, then nothing works right...
