Question for any profurl owners...
Question for Profurl owners
Have a Profurl RI25 furler - probably a late 80's early '90's vintage on a boat I recently purchased.
As you know, the headstay attaches to the titanium turnbuckle cylinder unit and to the link plate via the two link plate screws (blue colored screws)
I was able to get one screw off - but can't get the other screw off - have used gentle persuasion, plus PB-Blaster sitting for 2 days. Won't budge. I have a micro torch - and might use that - but not sure if the heat will cause issues with the titanium cylinder.
Need to get this off so I can adjust/inspect the turnbuckle. I would rather not breakoff the screw- as the screws cost $10-12 a piece...
Any out of box ideas appreciated.
