Question O'Day 22 furler

I have a 1975 22 foot O'Day and am looking for a furler, new or used, and would like to know if the appropriate furler willl only work with the job or also with my genoa. Will any make furler do or is there a specific one that only fits on this O'Day?

They are pretty much able to go on just about any boat. CDI would be the lowest cost choice.

Poster,

I take it you've already got a hank-on jib and a hank-on genoa.
In order to fit into the slot in the extruded foil that will surround your forestay, as part of your furling system, each sail will need to be retrofitted with a luff tape--akin to a boltrope--that in your case is likely to be a size #6.

When you talk to your sail loft about the retrofit, for the genoa at least, ask them about adding Foam Luff Pads, also. When partially furling a large headsail like a genoa, in order to reef (or reduce its area), the resulting exposed sail becomes very baggy in the middle, utterly defeating the whole idea of reefing. Adding foam in the center of the headsail's luff reduces baggyness, making the reefed sail flatter and restoring your ability to point.

Personnaly Harken is my first choice. Their furlers are extremely well built and wil work on almost all 22 footers, including the O'days. Just have your sailmaker modify your jibs/Genoas to accomodate the luff track of the furler. Usually the will remove the hanks and replace them with a luff tape/bolt rope that slides up the furler.

Good luck deciding

You may want to look at ALADO - Furler and Roller - main page Very inexpensive, very easy to install, incredibly rugged, extremely reliable, and I've never, ever, had a jam.

What are the other drawbacks to using furlers? I'm interested in getting one down the road.

Drawbacks of furlers. One more thing to fail on your boat. I have seen many boats lose there head sails on windy days thanks to furler failure. Also you take away options, now you have a 150 all the time without anyway to hank on your jib. It is all preference but we never reef our genoa. So the furler is not for reefing per say. It is for ease of use.

For local use, it is a great upgrade if you don't have one. Easy for single handing etc. I have had a boat without and now have a boat with. No problems with either set up. The furler is easy, and you don't have to drag sails around. We sail sometimes just for an hour at sunset, so nice to have the furler.

That could benefit us greatly as we'll, more than likely, have our boat on a trailer parked at the lake sailing club. It'd be one less thing to do once we splash the boat. Sounds very convenient then!

One thing to add, if you have furler that uses foils it can complicate stepping and unstepping the mast. You have to be cautious to avoid kinking the foils. The OP has a 22 and might be able to use a small boat system from harken (H436) that doesn't use foils, but does require a wire seized to the chosen luff. I don't know if this is a reefing system or strictly an "all out" or "all in" setup. But it should be cheaper than foil type systems and is better for trailerable setups.
