Re: Continous line roller furler

Do a 'google image' search for 'continuous line furling systems' and see if anything looks familiar..

Not that many manufacturers of this stuff and the logo doesn't sound familiar. You'll be able to post pics once you get more posts, using a hosting site like Photobucket works best.

Re: Continous line roller furler

Typically you can't reef with such units. It isn't clear from your posts if that is a concern or not for how you will be using it.
