I tried desperately to upload a photo, but I think the file is too large. I have a Harken roller furling, but not sure which model. No manual. Silver drum with one rope running down the port side into the cockpit.
There is a shackle on top of the drum- I am assuming this is to attach the genoa tack? There is a wire leading out of the top of the drum with a metal "U" shaped piece at the end. Is this some sort of release mechanism??
A sleeve with two plastic holes is located about 3 feet up the track.
The top hole for the genoa halyard shackle?
The other for the genoa head? If so, shackle or tied on?
Lastly, there doesn't appear to be a track to slide the luff into. Do I just pull the halyard up pretty tight, and then winch up the port side line that leads to the cockpit?
Thanks in advance for all of your help!
