I had to replace the top of the drum on my Furlex 100 unit recently.
The 2 plastic halves cost about $40 from my Furlex dealer if memory serves me.
Your RF unit did not look that bad to me in the pictures but it is not so easy to tell from here.
Good luck with your repairs and elderly mother.

Thanks, Caleb. I actually have the two top halves: I think they are still intact they may fit back OK. The outer drum surrounds (the black forward part and chromed rear part) are broken (where they screw together the screw fastening through the chrome section chewed through the black forward surround) and will have to be replaced at minimum, and perhaps the inner drum liner (the black plastic circular collar).

I'll check w/ my rigger in Annapolis & maybe Furlex re that after I get together w/ the surveyor & adjustor.

Thanks,
Jon

Paul Langelier at West River Rigging is a good guy and is the person to talk to about Furlex parts and repair in the Annapolis area. It sounds like you already have worked with him so you know that.

Let me know if you need a delivery estimate for insurance - I'll be happy to shoot you a proposal. It's an easy run to West River, Annapolis, or Baltimore. I'm in Annapolis now but my old stomping grounds centered on the Occoquan.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Thanks. I have a call in to Paul and appreciate the info/offer if I need a delivery. I'll PM you.

Re: Bow pulpit smashed &c.: Annapolis repair yard recommendations please

Wow! I just got a call from my dock master at the marina who told me that someone had hit my Heritage 37. He hit mine on the starboard side, though. It sounds like its getting more & more dangerous to leave the boat at a marina. The damage to my vessel is eerily similar. Any ideas on the approx cost to repair?
Fortunately, the people at my marina saw the incident and reported it to me, or I'd have never known who hit me. Nice to know there are still good people around. Still have a bunch of paperwork & inconvenience to go through, though.

Re: Bow pulpit smashed &c.: Annapolis repair yard recommendations please

I agree that it seems that might be a candidate to be fixed where it is but if if has to go to the yard, I think the other fellows insurance should pick up the tab to get it there if that means a tow or hiring a delivery captain.

I'd also suggest considering Deltaville instead of Annapolis. They have the skilled trades down there and are typically quite a bit less than the same quality in Annapolis. It would also be a bit closer if the boat had to be moved.

Re: Bow pulpit smashed &c.: Annapolis repair yard recommendations please

OP's boat was fixed in 2012.

The guy who asked for advice earlier today is in Florida.

Not sure the advice posted so far is relevant.
