I have a 2011 Tandem Island and the way the sail is rigged only the front seat can deploy and reef the sail. Is that the only way it can be rigged? Is there a way to rig the T.I. so that the person sitting in the back can deploy and reef the sail? Sorry if this is a stupid question or if this has been covered several times before. All responses appreciated. Dom

Easy peasy
1. Uncleat the front mainsheet, and pull it forward until just the end knot is locked in the cleat.
2. This will enable you to pull a extra towards you through the rear cleat.
3. Tie the end of the furling line to the end of the mainsheet (I use a figure eight knot), making an endless loop.
4. You should now be able to handle the sail from the rear seat.

There are some other posts of folks that have run the furling line to the back seat via blocks running along the port side.
