Furler Line Routing

I am about to install a CDI furler on my Capri 22. I have seen deck mounted fairleads and stanchion mounted fairleads. Is there an advantage to one or the other?

with stanchion mounted fairleads you don't put any more holes in the deck. It also keeps the line off to the side where you want it

Re: Furler Line Routing

Location will be largely dependent on drum height above the deck and forestay angle.

You gotta pull straight off the drum.

That's another reason to use your stanchions(pulpit) you can adjust the height to get it perfect

Re: Furler Line Routing

Staunchiun mounted are nice, though I prefer to go over my cabin top and onto a winch (or just a cam cleat and backup horn cleat on your small boat) somewhere near the companionway, much better angle for pulling by hand.

One warning with Staunchion mounts, keep them low, and make sure the last one near the cockpit is on a solid turning block onto something stronger than just a normal Staunchion, We ripped the whole base through a deck once, due to the side loads of the furling line.

Yup. Unless the drum is a deck dragger. Have also seen lower connection imbedded in the anchor locker with only the drum exposed above.

Snowpeteral what do you mean by side loads. I have a center cockpit sailboat and have a cam cleat on the last block. If I partially furl the sail I'll bring it back to the cleat. I'm trying to add photo but system keeps crashing

Re: Furler Line Routing

Your setup looks fine sparrowhawk the block is mounted right at the base where it cant generate much of a lever, the one that gave us trouble was similar but mounted about 6 inches up the Staunchion to clear the coaming. When pulling on it to furl in a blow it tore out the base.

Re: Furler Line Routing

I think all the Capris came with deck mounts, if they had roller furling from the factory. This induces way too much friction, so I moved mine to the outside of the stanchions- much better now. There are too many angles up and over the cabin top. Yes, it would be better to have the furling line up by all the other cleats and winches, but no easy way to minimize friction. On your 22, I don't think you'll have excessive loads for the stanchions, but still good to keep the line right above the deck.

Re: Furler Line Routing

Ours are on stanchions. This works fine in our case.
