Profurl In-Boom Reefing/Furling

Can anyone give me an idea of how much the Profurl In-Boom system costs ?

SM...you didn't give the size of the boat but for a 40 footer you can figure on around $15K-18K for an installed system with new mainsail from the major manufacturers...Profurl,liesurefurl and schaeffer with the LF being the most expensive.

Theodorus...that seems to be a flawed design in that the luff goes into the sail track. This prevents reefing off the wind due to the friction in the track which is why the majors use an articulating track that maintains alignment with the boom at any angle.

Can we call you Ted?

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.
