EDIT: It occurred to me to just called Harken
MKII and MKIII are compatible systems, and they still manufacture and sell parts
. So that's the solution!
came with a salvaged Harken MKII roller furling
system, and it turns out we're missing the Unit 2 extrusion connectors. Odd that they would salvage
it and someone miss these parts
. There's maybe maybe
a chance the pieces rolled from the lazarette into the bilge
, but not counting on it.
The rigger says that the system is so outdated (I believe Harken's on MKIV now) that we have no chance of finding these parts. We need 7 of them, I believe part #897 (I could be wrong, the rigger just left) on the manual: http://www.harken.com/uploadedfiles/...F/mk2-2-pl.pdf
I've looked on ebay and craigslist. The only local guy the rigger knows said he just cleared out his stock since he moved locations. Do you guys have any tips or tricks on finding missing parts, or do we just own a pile o' junk now?
