Harken Cruising Furling
Systems Unit 2 - Overview
The Harken Cruising Furler Unit 2 is engineered
with strength, longevity, ease of use, and price
crucial to the design. This dependable system
lets you smoothly unfurl your headsail, furl and
reef safely in a blow, and control boat speed
when maneuvering in a crowded harbor—all
from the safety of the cockpit.
Easy Reefing and Furling:
Multiple rows of large-diameter Torlon® ball bearings in the
halyard swivel minimize friction for smooth furling, require
no lubrication or isolating seals.
More Furling Power:
Large inner spool diameter increases mechanical advantage for
powerful reefing and furling. Smaller outside diameter allows
unit to fit narrow bows or belowdeck.
Stands Up to the Elements:
Halyard swivel, line guard, torque tube, and bearing races are
deep-saturation Hardkote-anodized for strength and durability,
with a black additive to resist the corrosive effects of saltwater
and sun and to provide long-term wear. The line guard is
powder coated for added corrosion resistance.
Line is kept on the spool with super-tough polymer drum cap
and anodized aluminum line guard. High-strength, low-stretch
line is included.
1. Strong Foil Joints -
Tough foil joints withstand years of
torque loading. Connector interlocks
to foil and secures with screws
2. Single-Groove Round Foil -
Round foil profile withstands extreme
reefing loads for safe furling. Rolls
more easily than aerodynamic
3. Easy-to-Assemble Foils -
C-shaped open connectors with
low-friction plastic isolators slip
onto the headstay wire and into
foil for easy installation.
4. Drum Installs Over
Existing Turnbuckle -
Units are adaptable to a variety of
rigging options for easy installation.
Harken® toggle assembly accepts
standard turnbuckle using swage,
rod, Norseman® or Sta-Lok® terminals,
or fits directly to a marine eye. A
single stainless steel clevis pin
provides access to the turnbuckle
