I've been researching many forums and would like to hear some of your opinions. This is our first winter with the in-mast furling here in Maryland and we have been finding conflicting views on what to do. Here is what I have found.
Leave it in because it is too much of a hassle to reinstall.
Remove only every 2-3 years to clean/inspect.
When you remove the sail, the internals of the mast makes an annoying noise.
What are your views? If removed, does the rattling of the parts in the mast damage anything.
