Need help identifying furler on older Newport 30 II

I purchased a 78 Newport 30 last year and need to get an idea of what furler came "stock" with the boat from Capital Yachts. I have been over it with a fine tooth comb, and find no identifying markings on it. the original purchase order fro Capital just lists "furler" with no other information. The barrel is about 3 1/2 to 4 inches across and it has a guide on each side of the barrel for the line. I would appreciate any assistance.

Maybe have a look at the various Newport listings on Yachtworld.com - maybe there'll be some hints in those pictures. If the factory supplied furlers they may well have used different models in differents years, or for different sized boats. Since they're out of business, direct info is going to be tough!

I know...and as for the pic, the boat is moored about an hour away...and it is winter here, so when I can scrape the snow off the boat, I'll get one

Without pictures.... best guess from the sound of it you have a Hood SeaFurl 810 LD (Line Drive)

CY liked the hood furler and its also what came on my '87 N30MkIII

If both ends of the furling line lead aft in a loop, and the line only goes around the 'drum' once, HBar is probably correct!
