Re: What's this on the furler?

Yup. It's a prefeeder although, without rollers, they can sometimes be problematic. Give it a good coating of SailKote and then lead the sail's luff tape through it and into the foil slot.

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
