Need some expert advice on a Profurl system already installed on our boat.
We have a newish Profurl system installed in 2007 by the previous owner. My documentation
is not completely clear on which model I have. There are some scribbles next to the c420, so thought I had a c420. But looking at the Profurl specs that is only good to 3/8" wire, and the shrouds are something like 5/16 Dyform or othercompact wire. So i doubt the head
stay is less. That would be stupid and troubling.
Also I see the 420 is rate only to a 45 foot boat and 600 sq ft of sail area. I just bought a 120% genoa
that is about 1,100 sq feet. The boat is 44' on deck
but with a 5' sprit, so her sail plan is for a 49' boat.
reported 37,000 to 44,000
Any idea of how I can tell with clarity which model i have?
In the event I have some 420 variant (apparently some 420 modles will go to 1/2" wire) what are implications of carrying that much sail area on that size furler
Our current genoa
is a Yankee of about 800 sq ft. 10oz cloth, so the new 120% genoa weighs less and occupies less room, so should roll up fine.
