Flat and Fast

Bookmark and Share

Facnor’s new FlatDeck furler combines the ease of single-line reefing with the low profile and mechanical advantage of a continuous-line furler. Because its hybrid furling line merges flat webbing with regular rope, the furling drum can be flatter and wider than a conventional furling drum. This creates more leverage when furling the sail and leaves more space on the forestay for the luff of the headsail. Each furling kit comes with a set of guide blocks fitted with a special sheave to accommodate the web portion of the furling line. From $2,100. Facnor Furling Systems, facnor.com
