Trying to understand/troubleshoot my in mast furler
. After raising my sail, I noticed the extrusion tube slid up out of the furling
base a few inches. Although I was able to get it back down, Iím suspicious that itís not supposed to move independent of the base. In the attached photo
I identified the joint with a red arrow.
There appears to be a set screw/bolt (identified by green arrow) which I was unable to break free due to the dissimilar metals (stainless bolt/aluminum furler).
Any perspective would be appreciated as Iím in the islands cruising without many resources available to troubleshoot and am nervous about the unit coming apart and causing a myriad of problems.
Iím unsure what make of furler
it is but Iím thinking a zspar or a Hood
? If I was able to identify the unit and get my hands on a schematic that would likely answer some questions.
