User-Friendly Furling

Bookmark and Share

The new NEX continuous-line Code O furler features a bright green "I-Connect" sail attachment system in both the base and swivel unit to facilitate quick sail changes using a captive pin system. The I-Connect can be operated with one hand and has no protruding parts to snag errant lines. A "Quick Fit" line-fitting system provides easy access to the furling drum so the furling line can be left on deck, ready to go, and then quickly attached to the drum just before hoisting the sail. Furling-line exit angles can be adjusted using the NEX's one-screw "Tune & Lock" feature. From $899. Frofurl/Wichard, Inc. www.wichard-usa.com
