Hood Line rolling furling foil repair

Does anyone know of a company that may still deal in these? My halyard got twisted up in the forstay and the whole thing came down, everything looks OK except of course the forestay and I broke a foil link, the part that connects on section of foil to the next.

If I have to replace the entire system I will probably just go to a hanked on sytem and a used sail for a while. I ultimately would like to repair the rolling furling without spending a lot of money.

Thanks
Matthew

Perhaps post a wanted with a picture to identify the foil here and other sailing sites. There is someone out there that has upgraded to a newer system and would part with the old one cheap.

It would help to also get an exact make/model/size of the furling unit in question.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

pompannett is the company that owns hood now. I purchased a 707 furrler a couple of years ago, and they were who I had to contact for an extra length of foil. You should be able to google them.
