Or it might be "Tides Marine" the makers of the famous (and lusted after by yours truly) strongtrack(TM).

By the way, if you haven't seen strongtrack in action, you might just want to install that instead of a furling mast. It's so slippery that it makes Teflon look like sandpaper. Uncleat the halyard and the sail DROPS suddenly in a heap into your stackpack or lazyjacks.

I've seen it in use by a catamaran that did afternoon sails for tourists. The singlehanding captain furled the headesail, then walked up to the mast, uncleated the halyard and within 2 seconds the sail had plopped down into the stackpack. Here is their video: Truely awesome....

Enough about Strong Track though, the company produces other stuff and they might be the ones that make what you're after.
