Product Description

The Series 60 Gennaker Furler provides easy headsail and gennaker furling with the simplicity and compact size of a continuous line system-no bulky line storage drum, minimum weight and the convenience and security of stowing the furler with the sail. Advanced drum technology and low friction, maintenance-free ball bearings ensure the speedy deployment and furling of sails. Unique drum groove ejects the furling line when the sail is deployed providing fast, free running and snag free operation. Low profile design allows maximum luff length/sail area.

Pros

  • Nice Kit - Well Made

Cons

  • Line Too Short For 22'

Best Uses

    Comments about Series 60 Gennaker Furler:

    26 feet of continuous line means 13 feet (approx) actual length. Therefore on my 22 footer it doesn't reach back to the cockpit (and I would suggest on most other 22 footers) So be prepared to buy additional line toi splice a longer span in.

    Comments about Series 60 Gennaker Furler:

    I ordered this to install on my Hobie 18. Looks like it will work, but it is not a true top down furler. To be a top down furler you need a clew attachment that is on a swivel at the base of the furler. This unit dosn't have one and Ronstan dosn't offer one either. I have tried to contact Ranstan by email and they will not respond. There are no instructions with the furler, and the on line support is marginal and very limited on this newer item. Over all it looks like a great product and I am sure I can make it work, I would just like some support on a $300 item.
