The headsails are from North Sails and are controlled with the Harken furling system. It is in good working order. There is a six oz. cloth on the headsail and a nine oz. on the staysail, which doubles as ther storm sail in bad weather.
The Quantum main and mizzen were made to use with the Forespar Leisurefurl in-boom furling system. All sails are controlled from the cockpit, including raising, lowering, and even reefing. To make it even easier, we added a couple of Andersen electric 58 secondaries, which we can raise, lower and reef the sails, as well as to furl the headsails when in tough weather.
The main and mizzen sheets are handled by Garhauer travelers. The one on the main is the new non-fouling traveler.Both control lines lead out the port side for ease of handling, and the Spinlok snap locks secure them.
