Re: Roller Furler Repair

Thanks for the comments. My furler is an older furler (1987?). Unfortunately, when buying the boat, I did not get a manual from the PO and am having some issues identifying the correct model from the Harken site on-line. I will look more closely at the furler to see if I can locate some more identifying info.

From the manuals I did read, they pretty much state that the bearings need a fresh water wash and spray with McLube. I was just doubtful that this would make a dramatic difference but it is worth a try before more invasive and expensive routes. Sounds like it provided a dramatic difference to Safira. Thanks again!
