Schaefer Marine new boom furler is the only system of kits kind says Dan Henderson of UK distributor Sea Sure.

The boom furling system, incorporating the company's patented articulated sailing track, enables the skipper to reef or furl on any point of sail from the safety of the cockpit.

"It is the most advanced solution for mainsail reefing and furling," explained Dan. "The unique sail track and feeder combine to precisely transfer any full battened main to the mandrel located within the boom, without snags or jams and with battens perfectly aligned."

Safe and easy

"Reefing can be easily and safely accomplished by one person on any point of sail, without changing course, heading up into the wind or leaving the cockpit," he added.

The boom furler comes in two sizes, the Beta for sails up to 44ft by 16ft and the larger Gamma for sails up to 53ft by 20ft. Both feature CNC-machined 6061-T6 aluminium inboard and outboard boom end fittings with double race Torlon ball bearings.

All points reefing

Each has a full length articulating 'sail receptacle mask track' with extruded mast slides designed to fit the ship's mast track allowing for 'all points reefing'. The boom furlers have a 5in stainless steel articulating mainsheet bail as standard and the semi-flush boom mainsheet track accepts special vang lug and mainsheet bails.

Also featured are a 316 stainless steel sail track feeder and 316 stainless steel boom scoop and both sizes have a universal three-pint hinged gooseneck fitting, internal boom claw and gooseneck mast back-up plates.
