Prefeeder, like everyone said..

Dave I embedded your pic again, go back to your post and 'edit' it to see the difference in the link code. PB has several link options, the IMG code is the one that embeds the picture rather than place a link.

I never use mine. It's just way easier using two people.

Like they said above, it's a pre-feeder, helps to guide the luff into the foil when you are hoisting so you don't need two people to get the sail onto the furler.

Yup. It's a prefeeder although, without rollers, they can sometimes be problematic. Give it a good coating of SailKote and then lead the sail's luff tape through it and into the foil slot.
