Re: Furler recommendation?

You might consider the Reef Rite from New Zealand. It has some some very nice features for reefing and changing sails if those are of interest to you. Other than that one, there are a lot of very good furlers out there. We have a Shaeffer that has been excellent. We also considered Profurl and Harken and I am sure they would have been fine. One thing to think of -different companies models do not have the same recommended size ranges. For one company you may be able to use a smaller, and cheaper model than for another.
