Pro Furling System CC 37
I replaced a furling system similiar to the old one you describe with a ProFurl LC32. The links that came with it placed it about one half the height of the pulpit which is just right for me.
It''s high enough to clear the bow roller stowed anchor. (the old one was too low and interfered with retrieving the anchor)Yet doesn''t reduce the luff length that much.
As mentioned earlier, just cut the links to what ever height you like. I really like the new furler! I''m sure you will also.
