The 811 is available with single luff groove (S series) or double luff groove (T Series). 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.
Plastimo 811 features adjustable chain plates as standard, allowing both mounting possibilities (chainplates or turnbuckle).
The Plastimo 811 Jib reefing unit features a chainplate with 5 holes. The forestay is pinned with a bolt (supplied) to one of the upper holes on the chainplate. The lower end should be pinned to a toggle (not supplied) for connection to the deck.
The 811 drum and halyard swivel are equipped with Torlon® and Delrin® ball bearings for increased performance and mechanical resistance.
Both 811 models have a drum capacity of 13m x 6mm line.
The T series has 1 base foil (2.05m) and 4 other foils (each 2.15m)
The S series has 1 base foil (1.5m) and 6 other foils (each 1.5m)
