Australian made furlers: Furlaway, Reefit and Reefurl

Hi there, we need 2 x 3-4m extrusion to match our "Furlaway" headsail furler foils as we will be putting in a new mast which is 2m taller ()

The section is 44-45mm diameter and has 4 grooves. 2 at 180 degrees to each other measure 10mm wide x 12mm deep and the other 2 are at 90 degrees to these (therefore at 180 to each other) and measure 5mm wide x 12mm deep. It's a classy system as there are no rivets, sort of all slots together. Unfortunately Furlaway went out of business in the early 90s and a google search exhausting my vocabulary failed to turn up these extrusions... hope someone can help!

Failing that we may be looking at new furlers - yikes! 2 genoas with luffs (for the new sails) 15-16m and one for the staysail with a luff (again only approx, as new mast not yet installed) of around 10-11m. I prefer to buy local so would love to hear from anyone with experience of the Tassie system "Reefit" or the Whitsundays system "Reefurl". Hope you can help!
