Is a Profurl NC25 too small for the yankee jib on a WS28?

    I found a deal on a Profurl NC25 and not sure if this one is too small.

    From all the data it looks the right size, but I recall in Bud's manual he recommends the next size up?

    If not the Profurl NC25, then I was going with the Alado.

    I think so. The NC32 is barely big enough for the bigger jibs.

    Sean,

     

    I use an NC42 for the headstay.  It is a good fit.  The NC32 is a good fit for the staysail.

    Good luck,     Dave

    I use an NC32 for the headstay, but in order to fit enough line for the bigger headsails ~300 sq ft I have to use 1/4" line for the furling drum. Trying to pull that line by hand in a blow is very hard. I have routed the line so that I can use the sheet winch if I have to.

    So looks like this deal is a no go.

    I think I am back to going with the Alado unit.  Should I get the A2 or A3?

    I don't know, sounds a lot like a W32 thread to me.  ;)
