I guess it is less exposed to the sun.

For some bizzarre reason I thought it was the Harken.. oh well, they're both black.

The Furlex does seem like a good unit - and that I can understand the Manual is a bonus. I'll be down there this arvo with the sailmaker to talk about adjustments to the headsail... then I get to go sailing again.
