Good info for a different purpose.
I'm trying to run a "green stick" from my AI conversion.

Instead of a jib fwd I'll need to face aft. The green stick line will run about 45 degrees to the water and pulls a teaser that keps the line taut. You hang your rod line with a squid that dances over the water off the green stick line.
The line has to clear the first batten at least.
I have a flag pole rig for running the line up now, but the rotating device seems like what I need as I may need to furl the sail during hookup. Now I have to retriev the complete green stick rig before any required furling..
Keep up the posts. I may be able to steal an idea that works for fishing also. Maybe with enough applications Hobie will make a rotating fixture that is anchored in the mast itself. Maybe a bearing(or two) (like stringies furling rig) a rod pases through, and you can attach various "application" devices to it?
