Thing 1: Hood SeaFurl 810 LD head sail roller furler
available. It's a continuous line roller furler
. It does work
, but recently a not so bright group of individuals who pulled my mast
, snapped one of the sections of the track. Replacement tracks can be purchased. If anything, it's also a good find for parts
if you're looking.
Thing 2: Famet external roller furling main unit
. Works great, but it came with the boat
and I'm going back to a regular main w/lazy jacks.
Both furlers are coming off an Island Packet
27. The headstay length is approx 35 feet (I say approx, because it's pouring cats and dogs
right night and I don't want to wade through the boatyard to go measure it.) The mast
on the IP 27 is 38' 6". Furling
unit is approx 28 feet. Track for the boom is 12 feet. (boom doesn't come with it, there's a track that comes off the boom that does come with the furler
are pretty tired, but come with either unit.
MAKE ME AN OFFER... I'm located near Jacksonville
, FL, and we can make arrangements for pick up or delivery
