I'm pretty sure it's a Schaefer SnapFurl. I'm not sure whether it's a CF-500 or CF-700 from the picture.Anybody know how to straighten a furling foil for the jib? It's not bent too bad, you can see it in the pic.
I think those instructions are for the plastic furler, which is virtually unbreakable. I wouldn't try that with an aluminum extrusion.To my untrained eye, that looks to me like a flexible furler, something akin to a CDI or hood seaflex. If so, an excerpt from the cdi manual has the answer: the furler can be "straightened by bending the luff in the opposite sense until it comes straight. Another option is to put the luff in a pipe or tube outside in the sun for one to two weeks to straighten it."
