Actually that was a solution to a problem..I didn't want a furler at all, but because 3 months a year my wife likes us to cruise in Southern Europe, I needed a simple system that wouldn't affect performance when we use the race sails. So this is why we had this made.
The difficult part was the bow piece and the metal insert you see going inside the furler. But everything has a solution.

The cost of these is slightly higher than a normal furler, but its worth it.. just...a big just...needs washing every now and then, since the bearings are torlon.
