Sounds like a Tuff Luff foil. Should have stainless steel at the entries of each track on the bottom.

You should have a prefeeder a few inches underneith. Will ease feeding the sail in considerably and result in less wear and tear on the luff. Here are a couple types: Schaefer - SS & Bronze Main Sail Pre-feeder 1/4 in. -1/2 in. Bolt Rope (6mm-13mm) (which is similar to what we have on our boat) and SIGNETMARINE Ultimate Prefeeder. Stainless steel headsail prefeeder. (Both sites chosen at random from the results of a Google search on "headsail prefeeder.")
