Thanks Jim,

I’ll order some Dyneema now. I fear this will just be the start of questions though but what an efficient resource.

Thank you again for all the swift replies.

I have an Enterprise, their are also several at my club, wooden ones, composite and GRP, all have the fitting shown in JimC's link, (almost certain furling jib not class legal).

Whilst Enterprises don't and aren't allowed to race with a jib furler, it could be useful for cruising, and would explain why the halyard isn't long enough with the jib mounted low down.

I think maybe a furler for my jib could be the simplest answer. Class rules wont be an issue where she’ll be. Biggest issues will be keeping her out of the way of other boats and me out of the drink and in the pub.

Thanks again for all the help.

A new jib furler would probably cost as much as a new jib..... but they are useful :) For crusing though I'd be inclined to keep things as simple as possible. use a rope strop to join the top of the jib to the halliard shackle and a lashing at the bottom of the forestay. Can't beat belt and braces (and, for cruising, add an extra piece of string...)
