No unstepping of the mast and no modification of the forestay is requird thanks to a unique (patented) design. This simple but effective design makes for extremely easy installation and take down, providing you with a totally reliable crew member. 

Available with twin (T-series) or single (S-series) luff grooves to cater for cruisers as well as racers. The S series is ideal for the cruiser who simply requires the furling facility for easy reefing. The T series is useful for the cruiser racer because the double groove allows for more efficient sail changes. If the drum is bypassed and halyard swivel disregarded, a second sail can be rigged before taking down the existing one.

Choose a model based on the length of vessel and make an allowance for your maximum headsail size. For example, a 6m boat with 16 square metre head sail may be better suited to a 609. Measure your luff and cut your final foil to length allowing a few inches for luff stretch caused by halyard tension. For headsails with a longer luff and shorter foot, you may require an additional foil to complete the assembly.
