Franc, we were at the boat tonight as they just launched her this afternoon. We couldn't wait to see her in the water again. I took s couple of pictures of our boom for you. It appears as though your's differs from ours. The spot where the furling line turns back towards the forward part of the boom has the notch cut out where on your's it does not. Looks like somebody goofed on your's.

Franc, we're heading over to do some work on ours. We expect to be launched some time next week. I wrote a note to check on our furler line. Although we've not sailed her much I can still check for potential issues. I'll let you know what I find.

For those of you with Zspars masts and roller furling mains:

See below photo for the chafing problem we are having. It seems that the mainsail outhaul line chafes inside the boom. Do you have the same problem or does it look like your outhaul is mounted different?

I would appreciate your thoughts.
