CDI Furling Line Replacement Process

Hi: Discovered today that the furling line on my MacGregor's 2001 26x's CDI flexible furler is nearly worn through. Need to replace. Though I removed and reinstalled the 150 Jib several years ago (UV Fabric ripped off), I could use some guidance in keeping the job simple. I can print out the manual but am not sure which model I have.

Thanks
Tom

Re: CDI Furling Line Replacement Process

Welcome! I replaced mine last year, CDI Flex Furl II. I placed an SS ring with zip ties to keep it from being able to slip above or below the drum which it tended to do at the most incooperative moments. There should be a hole where the knot goes which leads below into the drum. I tied a double overhand knot myself. Make sure the jib is furled and run the line aft, through any sheaves you may have and back to the cockpit, or however your setup runs. Unfurl the jib and keep a little tension on it to ensure it rolls nicely on the drum and thats about all she wrote.

If you'd like someone to talk to, try calling Blue Water Yachts (206) 282-4261)- they have been very helpful to me when dealing with a 1990 26c.
