Re: Leisure furl boom

Hi Mr Caos, the guy I know who could not get it to work ..... Can't get other things to work on his boat either. It just takes practice like you say.

Re: Leisure furl boom

Thanks for your comments gentlemen, I do manage to keep my Dutchman tuned so it works properly so not afraid of systems requiring some finesse if they work.
I don't remember posting anything at all to you Mark, sure you don't have me confused with someone else ?

Hi Mark,
Yes the system is really straightforward, I have yet to have it jam.

Here is a link that will save me a lot of typing.

Re: Leisure furl boom

When looking at this Schaefer had a lot to offer. With tract sail could angulate better. Less friction and sensitivity to being dead upwind. They have two units. Big one OK for up to mid40s depending on size of mainsail
