RE: Removing cams
I previously queried this process when derigging ssr's, the instructions state to pop off the cams before releasing tension on outhall and downhall or risk damaging sail.
The problem I have on both ssr's and code red's is that the cams wont pop off without mammoth pressure (actually tore some stitching once). As a result I generally end up working the cams up the mast as I release pressure (as you suggest).
I know of other Code Red users who phoned me when derigging to ask how to get the cams off.
Any pro comments, greatly welcomed.
