My boat has a furling genoa system installed and I have been having some issues this season with the halyard wrapping around the forestay. The halyard wraps a couple of turns and then unwraps and wraps again. As I understand this is not an uncommon problem and I have read various articles/post giving advice on how to prevent it from happening.
I have a halyard diverter installed at the top of the system which if I understand correctly should help with the angle of pull on the halyard and prevent it from wrapping. My question is should this diverter move with the system or remain static? It seems that mine is mobile, this wrapping problem is something I have only recently noticed.
Thanks in advance
