Yeah, did a little research and Streamstay is a furler - with integral drum so probably not that. We had a boat in a local race fleet with a "racing" foil with fore-and-aft grooves so I suspect it's one of those - maybe Hyde produced such a thing at one point, don't know.
A picture would solve that conundrum.. but really, he's looking at a new replacement, most likely, regardless of what it "was".
