Re: Furler recommendation?

Cameron,
Womboat furler that blew apart is a Furlex. in reality all that happened was the outer cover was UV degraded and it disintegrated. Replacement parts were not all that expensive and took ten minutes to fit. Although I bought replacements for both the inner and outer stays the inner is still the original and seems fine. I guess it is less exposed to the sun.
