hey guys. the old furler
that came with my boat
is shot so it's time for a replacement.this furler
will be going on my 1970 hinckley 38. much as I like the harken
MKIV it's just not in my budget
so the units I'm looking at are:
ESP furler: fairly new on the market from what I understand. I like harken quality but I'm a little wary of a "budget" furler, even from harken.
Facnor LX-165: never used them personally but my understanding is that they're very good quality.
profurl C-350: again, never used them personally but I'm told they're good quality. though not quite at the same par as the facnor and harken, price
point is attractive however. the green annodizing is like nails on the chalkboard to me..
the harken and the facnor are within $100 of each other in price
, which the profurl is several hundred dollars cheaper. any thoughts on these guys.
