Re: Hydraulic Headsail Furler

The option we chose was to use a cockpit secondary winch and our Milwaukee "electric winch handle". Works quite well, but not as easily as just pushing a button! But then, it didn't cost very much and required no modifications to the boat.

And it never leaks hydraulic fluid!
