Harken Underdeck Furling System
Harken Small Boat Underdeck Furling Units are ideal for sportboats and daysailers from 4.8 m to 9 m (16 to 30 ft). The drum is located beneath the deck, lowering the tack height for maximized sail area. The single through-deck ball joint provides a low-profile, nearly watertight system that aligns the spool to the headstay. Like all Small Boat furlers, the underdeck furler is for furling only, not reefing.
An optional hoistable ball bearing halyard swivel can be installed on your headstay so you can raise or lower the sail without removing the headstay. Swivels are independent of the headstay, allowing you to tension the luff separately from the mast rake. Hoistable swivels work along with your standard Harken Small Boat furler.
Tack Adapter Tangs
Stainless steel tack adapter tangs are used to adapt clevis pin diameters on headstays to the standard clevis pin size that comes on the Harken unit. A third hole accepts lashing to adjust jib luff tension.
