Can you help identify this mystery headsail furler?

Ahoy Sailnetters,

I'm new to this forum and need help identifying the headsail furler on my new (to me) 1974 Pearson 30. It has an open drum, round foil, fairly large swivel and a logo that looks like a gliding gull (see pictures). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you help identify this mystery headsail furler?-dsc_0352-1.jpg

The furler needs repair, possible a bearing kit or has a headstay strand jamming the foil. Identifying it seems like a good place to start.

Cheers,
pthorn

Use a pair of binoculars to examine the halyard at the top of the foil to see if it's getting wrapped up. That will jam things up.

You may not be happy about this taken from the Goiot product page:

These parts can also be used on our former furlers delivered from 1991 to 1998 (spare parts for other furlers manufactured prior to 1991 are no longer available).

I'm not familiar with this make of furler, but I assume that it has the halyard attached to a collar which slides up and down the foil and is free to rotate where it is attached to the jib. This may be sticking and causing the halyard to wrap around the forestay. Also, the angle that the halyard makes at the top of the mast where it goes into the sheave is important. If it is too shallow, then this will increase the tendency of the halyard to wrap around the stay when you try to furl.

I qould recommend taking the furler off so that you can examine it and make see what is functioning and what is not. It is also important to take a look at the state of the forestay which will have been hidden under that foil for a long time. When I replaced my old CDI furler, the forestay was shot and I had to replace it.

Good luck

Stuart
