So our "new to us" boat has a Hood
continuous line furler
(810 Seafurl LD) which I am not too thrilled about... I gather these are really only "furlers" and you can't use them to partially reef the headsail as they tend to slip under heavier conditions, just when you don't want them to.
Based on postings here I gathered I could get a good deal on an upgrade from Hood
and they have offered me a pretty good price
on a full 707SL furling
line, reef and furl.
My question is if this is a good piece of kit or not? It will be on a Gulf 32', so I'll be near the upper end of the range for that product (for up to 33' according to their literature).
I'd like to get a better furling
system on there sooner rather than later, and this seems like a good deal, but I don't want to buy something I'll need to upgrade again in only a few years.
Any experience with these anyone?
Thanks in advance.
