Capta, It's a boat, I'm sure you'll find something to worry about!

Re: Hood in mast furling

Just a quick update about the one way thing.
I've found, for my purposes that it's so much easier to push the toggle up for putting the sail out (up) and down for doing the opposite.
For the person who asked about the crisp new main, I can tell you from personal experience (bragging a tiny bit here) that it works wonderfully with a brand new 9 ounce main.
Jordi, there's nothing in my info on the control "box", if you mean the big PVC sealed tube which is in the engine room. Again, I'm sure Eric can answer any questions.
Point of interest, we just finished replacing the manual/electric gear box that, on our boat, was behind the goose neck. Surprisingly everything came apart easily and we relubed each screw and bolt w/anti-seize compound for next time. The years of living on the edge are over, as we now have a manual back up for the electric furling.
Oh dear, what will I have to worry about now?

If you can wait a week or so I'll look. Starting a charter Monday, so we're pretty busy right now.
Otherwise, Eric Pearson, 401-423-1568 is an expert at those things.

Frank:
Peter Linwick at Florida Rigging and Hydraulics I have worked with and found to be very helpful, with both his knowledge and parts, for the Hood Stoway furling system. His email is Pete@rigginghydraulics.com or their general service email is service@rigginghydraulics.com. Their general service telephone is 561.863.7444. They claim to have the best Hood Stoway parts inventory in the US. The other person that I read on numerous posts that services these is Eric Pearson at 14 Backstay Rd., Jamestown, RI 02835. His telephone is 401.423.1568. I have not used Eric but he is well regarded and recommended from others as knowing these furling systems well and is respected for his servie on them. Those are the top two in the US that I am aware of. Specific problems or just a general refit?
Good luck,
Don
