I have a FurlerBoom and need some help.   Recently, when reefed, the sail will slowly unwind from the mandrel as it appears that the reefing line is slipping inside the front of the boom.    The furling line is not slipping at the clutch.

I think I will replace the furling line but canít see how to feed the new line into the front of the boom. Everything is enclosed.   I would like to do it without taking the sail off.

Does anyone have experience with this boom?

Rob,
        I can't speak for furlerboom, but on our furling boom you need to maintain tension on the furling line as it rolls up when raising the sail.    Tension on both the halyard and the furling line are important.  Furling line tension when raising the sail ensures it will wrap properly and snugly rather than sloppily.  Sometimes that can cause a bulky wrap and there isn't enough room in the drum (especially with a 76' luff mainsail) for all the line that way.

FWIW

Good info Rick!!    I think I'm getting good wraps.   The problem that I am having is that the furling line is no longer holding the drum when reefed.   The drum is turning and letting the main sail out in heavy air...when I want it furled the most!!!
 
I furl at the battens so that a batten is wrapped on the drum to add a little extra holding power as recommended from FurlerBoom.

I don't know FURLERBOOM but on my LEISUREFURL there is a racheting/locking cylinder that does just this. You use it when you want to unload the line from the drum.   Is there something similar?
