mlsalwa I have an Alado furler on my Hunter 26.5 for two years now. Had no problem mounting it and it has worked fine. Wish I would have done it 10 years ago. I especially like the fact that I did not have to rework the forestay like some of the others.

dvpamenter I appreciate the comment. Felt disclosing any time I commented on a furler would do, but you are likely right SD so sig is changed.

sailingdog I'd point out that you probably should be disclosing this fact as part of your signature, in order to comply with Sailnet's Special Interest declaration requirements.

svobsession Old thread... but Are you guys still happy with your alado?

sailingdog Sounds good... also sounds like Hood has a customer service problem.

NCountry Just a follow up note. (It came to me that I might want to do this). I ended up with the Alado. The installation was super easy and only took a morning to do. It has worked flawlessly ever since with no problems what so ever. The salesmen Mr. Davenport was super great to work with and the furler arrived even faster than promised. Even after several inquiries I have NEVER heard from Hood about the old furler. Looks like this sailor won't be a needin any Hood equipment on his boat...........

Alado

I have an Alado system that I installed two years ago. There have been some minor headaches, but it has proven to be worth the effort. The installation is easy, but the instructions are poor, and it helps to have some previous furler experience. I didn't have any, and it took me a while to get the bugs ironed out. I'm satisfied now, though, and it is the least expensive system out there. The only drawback I can see is that I haven't figured out how to store the second halyard.

Ronbye Ncountry, I have an Alado system and it works great. I just recently went through a 50 knt squall and was able to furl the jib halfway while under load with no problems. The first year I had it, I had a number of foils twist. Alado sent me replacement foils and I haven't had a problem. I highly recommend it.
