Ronstan Code 0 & Gennaker Furlers - Spares
The Ronstan Furler is designed for the furling of sails with a instraight in luff, such as code zero sails, screechers or staysails. These sails are generally for sailing at true wind angles less than 90°. The furler is designed to have the tack of the sail attached to the furler and the head of the sail attached to the top swivel. This will provide furling along the entire length of the luff.
With the addition of a Top Down Adapter (TDA), soft luff and full mid-section sails such as reachers and gennakers can be furled. These sails are generally for sailing, at true wind angles of greater than 90°. The top- down furler is designed to have the tack of the sail attached to the floating swivel collar on the TDA unit, and the head of the sail attached to the top swivel. Furling begins at the top of the sail and continues progressively from the head down to the tack.
For both of these two options the sail must be either completely unfurled or completely furled - the furler cannot be used with a partially furled sail.
You will require a synthetic luff cable (torsion line) with a thimble at each end, connected between the fork of the furler at the bottom and the swivel at the top. We recommend you discuss options with your sail maker for torsion line type, diameter and length, to suit your requirements.
Ronstan provides a range of accessories and spares to suit your furler.
