Hi everyone, this is an old thread but rather than starting a newone I thought I'd ask the question here, perhaps someone can help me. Mine is a Plastimo
S600 furler. The last time I serviced this furler was some 10 years ago. Its on a TS Careel 22 so not on the water
100% of the time. I hve seen this furler on larger yachts of course. The last time I disassembled it I replaced the plastic tube inside it as it was shattered. I used a piece of silicone tube and it has lasted this distance OK keeping dirt and sand out quite well. I am thinking I need to re grease the bearings. Does anyone know what kind of grease to use. The last time I used standard marine
bearing grease, but I note that is has hardended somewhat. Perhaps that is not the correct grease or maybe I should have checked it at more regular intervals.
Your thoughts about what kind of grease to use would be appreciated. Bear in mind of course that at most my boat
is on the water
for a total of 60 days, if I am lucky.
Thank you in advance.
