Re: PSC34: Profurl C32 on a circa 1988 boat?
Here's an update.
I've put some hose clamps on the foil and taped them with sail tape. I can't get the hose clamps up as high as I'd like because the crack is close to where the luff enters the foil track and early attempts I saw the luff being pushed out of the track as I tightened up on the main halyard.
Profurl was not good about returning my calls, but with some persistence, I was able to get them to confirm the part number that I needed for the lower foil (2218). It's the same for many of the 32 models. They told me to call Vela Sailing to order the part and I was very happy with Vela Sailing.
The parts are being shipped to the yard that I work with in Maine. If they are too busy I will try installing the parts myself, otherwise I'll let them handle it. Should be about a week to get the parts.
