Looks like the Schaeffer roller furlers on my 1973 Gulfstar 44, except it seems to have some extra flanges on top.

travlineasy will become famous soon enough
It looks a lot like the one I just gave away. Don't know who the manufacturer is, but for me it didn't work well at all. There was a cable sewn into the sail's luff, a swivel at the top and a swivel at the bottom of the drum. In my case, the swivel at the top frequently bound, thus untwisting the halyard, which was also a cable. It only did this under load, which was when you needed a fouled system like a hole in the head.

Good Luck,

Gary
