Re: Roller Furler Repair

The cost of bearing replacement may be quite expensive, and that's if you can find replacement bearings. You may want to replace it with an Alado system, which I did several years ago. Very easy to furl and maintenance free. Go to Alado Nautica USA Reefing and Roller Furling Systems Home Page

Good Luck,

Gary

Re: Roller Furler Repair

I built my entire furler for under $100, and it has no bearings to fail. I have been using this type since 1982, with no failures.
