Hood Stowaway inmast furler

I know a few of us have Hood Stowaway inmast furlers and I was wondering if anyone had worked on the manual crank mechanism on the front of the mast? Do you have or know where to get an exploded view of this mechanism? Thanks

Re: Hood Stowaway inmast furler

Sorry, no help.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.

Re: Hood Stowaway inmast furler

Capta: I have a Hood Stoway owner's manual but it is on my boat which is now all wrapped up on the hard in Bristol, RI, 2,600 mi. from me. Do you have this manual? I recall drawings of how the manual crank system works in that manual. If not, I have used Peter Linwick at Florida Rigging and Hydraulics and found them very knowledgeable and with some stocked parts for the Hood Stoway. Eric Pearson, whom I believe is in Jamestown, RI, is also mentioned frequently as very helpful on these with service and parts. I am sorry that I cannot help more. I am back aboard in June.

Re: Hood Stowaway inmast furler

Neither my Pearson boat manual and the one downloaded from Pompanette has anything more than a passing description of the manual crank. I'll give Peter Linwick at Florida Rigging and Hydraulics a try, but I have been unable to contact Eric, as he apparently doesn't do email.
Thanks for the head's up, but I hope I won't have to wait until you get back to your boat to get to work on my manual furling.

Re: Hood Stowaway inmast furler

capta,

I had my stoway rebuilt by eric pearson in RI 4 years ago. even before i decided to send it back to him, he was very forthcoming with helpful advice. a quick call to him might solve your problem. i just sent you a PM with his phone number. what exactly is wrong with your manual backup?

Re: Hood Stowaway inmast furler

Did you every get a manual or anything? I called Eric but unfortunately he is in the hospital and won't be available to help for 6 weeks. I need to take mine apart and cannot figure out how to drop the bearings to replace them.

I did get a hand drawing that seems OK, and a drawing from a manual, but that is almost unintelligible, so I guess the answer is maybe. I won't be able to do the rebuild until our season is over, so I don't know for sure how much help they will be.
I am hoping DFletcher2 is getting closer to Bristol, RI, as I am anxiously awaiting a copy of his manual.
Let me know if I can help, but as I said, I haven't been in there yet.

Re: Hood Stowaway inmast furler

Sweet - thanks Capta - I'll message you my contact info if you can forward what you have. I'll add my notes after I complete my teardown. I figured out how to take the majority of it apart but I'm stuck at this point from completing the job.

Re: Hood Stowaway inmast furler

I have a copy of the manual in good condition for the basic manual drive unit but it does not show much in the way of unit assembly. Which bearings are you needing to replace
