    Hi All,
    We have roller furling on the genoa and would like to convert to roller reefing. Having looked at some other boats it would seem possible to make out own. We are considering using a length of 10mm diameter aluminium tubing slid into the luff sleeve and fixing it at each end to the furling gear. Does this seem reasonable or is there something we have missed. As far as we can see the important thing is to stop the top fixing spinning on its own allowing the sail to unroll.
    Thanks

    Have you seen this thread and the links contained in it? Or this one?
    And there are some interesting essays on the WIT too.
