    If one was to use a Code 0 type sail on a shorthanded dinghy, would a furler be a sensible idea? I have heard that the sails dont like to come down once they are up.

    Why bother? But in any case you wouldn't need to make it out of the same materials.

    if you have a dinghy, you'd most likely only have ones chute. You'd probably want something fuller than that. Code 0's are good for distance races, but not so much for windward-leward
