I need to get new standing rigging
and I am in a location that requires me to strip the mast
and bring the rigging
to the rigger myself. Not a problem until I realized that my furler
is one with my headstay and that I cant really transport the headstay with the foil and furler
I am not really sure of what model the furler is. The instruction manual just says "unit 1.5". It appears that the foil has been connected to the headstay with screws and adhesive
and that the drum and halyard
swivel are stuck on stay because they are blocked by the swage at the end of the stay.
Does anyone have any experience with the removal
of these units and more importantly whether or not I can reuse this one with a new headstay?
