I just picked up a 1999 H20, it came with a Roller Furler for the Jib, when we tried to rig it the cable was approx 12+ inches to long. The cable length is approx 22' 3" which is the length for the stock cable. Is this the proper length for the roller furled jib or should it be a different?

Per the Hobie wire guide, the jib halyard wire for a H20 with roller furler should be 21'-2 1/2" long.

The stock jib wire halyard (non-furler) is 22'-3".

Thanks SRM, looks like I'll be buying a new cable as well
