The 406 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.

The 406S comes with 2 furling drum attachment options. The chainplates version is for use without a turnbuckle and features 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 turnbuckle version has 14 holes and is approximately twice the length. This attachment is for use with a rigging screw or to increase the drum height. The extra height keeps the rigging screw available for adjustment.

All 406 models have a drum capacity of 7m x 5mm line
The T series has 1 base foil (2.05m) and 2 other foils (each 2.15m)
The S series has 1 base foil (1.5m) and 3 other foils (each 1.5m)
