I just got a sail kit and furler for my 2013 Outback. So far sailed it once without the furler kit, winds were light so it was fine.

What side is everyone installing the furler lines on? Instructions show right side, but it would seem to make more sense to install on the left since you already have the sail line in your right hand.

Am I missing something? Any thoughts?

ATV,
Unless your kit is very different from a typical installation on the AI's and TI's,
It is on the right next to the main sheet camcleat,
I believe if you mounted it on the left. the sail would not furl properly.
I find it comfortable to have the lines side by side ......It makes it easier to handle both lines at once if you need to put a little tension on the main sheet when furling.

I agree with you ATV, I put my furling lines on the left side of my revo when I got the kit.
