Thanks for sharing your solution to dealing with the jib furling line. We have been looking for a solution that will work for us. I like the addition of the block but it seems to require the rope clutch to be a bit too far forward for the way we sail. We would prefer the rope clutch to be further back, nearer to the furling line cleat, where we would be working from. You’ve given me something to think about!

On my boat, which I have now sold, I also
used a turning block attached to the rail, but I put a clam
cleat just in front of the block to temporarily secure the
furling line while I transfer it the the stationary cleat that
came with the boat, after I had hauled the furling line in.
I had a power winch on the cabin top that I used to haul in the furling line. The smooth pull from the winch gave me a nice trim wrap of the sale.
I just secured the clam cleat using one of
the screws from the deck railing.

I’m by no means an expert at this, but I have considered replacing the last block on my jib furling line with a cam cleat block. Something so I can lock it in quickly while trying to single hand, or at least add some efficiency.

That is what I did. The block is secured to the toe rail and therefore is not rigid. At a result it does not usually line up to effectively use the clam cleat.
