The flexible furler is a hassle-free "set and forget" reefing system. This kit is for Catalina 25 tall rig for hull 5802 and earlier.
It never needs maintenance and is durable enough to withstand most any mishap. The luff was designed to maintain proper sail shape in the reefed mode and to reef safely even if high winds force you to use a winch.
We have upgraded the furling gear kit to make it completely "bullet proof".
The once stainless steel furler cup is now ABS plastic with a UV inhibitor and durable chrome plating.

4) When you order this special order item it sets off a chain of events like Willie Wonka in the chocolate factory. Once you turn the valve the chocolate is coming down the pipe. If you then decide you want caramel, the chocolate is still going to come out of the pipe. We can't put the Chocolate back in the pipe, so someone is going to have to eat it, and it's not going to be us! Your order can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into caramel, so please order carefully the first time!
