Hey John,
Any suggestions for those of us that already have a boat with a roller furling system. The old Hood main furling system (1988) on our boat was the one big compromise we made and are now realizing how much of a hassle it is to remedy. So far, the consensus from several riggers is a new spar at half the cost of initial boat purchase price. One rigger suggested there might be a way to attach a track over the gap in the mast, and a new boom. But they have never performed that and the cost was still up there. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for the information, it a Sceptre 41. What are your thoughts on a used mast? Or if another scepter owner would be willing to trade spars. This might be a bit out there, but we have met a few in the owners group that wished they had a furling main. This is our first time owning a boat, please excuse our naivete.
