Question about furling 200s

I need to get a new genoa for my furling 200s. The problem i have is to figure out what size foil tape(i think) for the roller furling. I'm very bad with the terms on sail gear and such(I'm from from sweden) The old sail was ripped to shreddes and trown out before i got the boat and the manual for the R.F. have had a liquid meltdown from the humidity it's been exposed to.
Any help would help

Sailmaker will help you out. Since you need to order a new sail, tell them type of boat and RF system you have and most likely, they will know size of foil tape. They may even have samples for you to try before ordering the sail! Good luck.......

We have a 300S system which shares the same manual and as far as I can see from that manual, the same extrusion as the 200S. Our sailmaker was a Furlex dealer also, he said the system took a size 6 tape but recommended using a size 6 light to permit easier hoisting. He taped three jibs for us with 6 light and we have had no problems with those jibs in seven years of use. You should be able to expect a local sailmaker to either know this answer or to figure it out, but I would expect his answer to be 6 light.

The only reason i wanted to know before i went to a sail maker is if i saw a used sail in good condition, i would atleast know if it would fit.

Your best bet is to look it up in their literature or to contact them and ask them.

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.
