Re: Profurl boomkicker repair

I can't find any info on a boom vang made by Profurl.. are you sure that's the brand? If you post a picture when you can someone might be able to identify it.

Garhauer, Forespar, Spinlock, Schaeffer, and others produced them, but I don't seem to be able to find any by Profurl, whose sole product line looks to be furlers.

Re: Profurl boomkicker repair

OK.. I've found the installation manuals (for the furling systems) on line but not much help there.. they do have a tech help page, maybe send them a note directly...
