This is Echo, we have a similar continuous line furler. They work really well. This was taken a couple of weeks ago sailing Les Sables d'Olone to Ile de Re.

We ordered design #1 which my wife (who outranks me) liked best.

In the meantime I took delivery of an endless furling line, new Dyneema spinnaker halyard and very long floating sheets. The latter, based on cost, must be woven from platinum thread.

This morning early (before the wind came up) I hooked up the old symmetrical spinnaker to the new furler and hoisted it (unfurled). Once up, I furled it. It took a lot of pulls on the furling line but it went smoothly. A very tight furl above the sheet, looser below. The clew goes up very high as it furls.

The photos show it partly and fully furled. It lowered to the deck easily and I packed it in the bag, bottom first, in a figure 8 pattern. Much easier than repacking a loose spinnaker, and it is much more compact.

More photos when we try it out at sea.

Thanks for the votes. There are of course many other possible designs, including solid colors. Still deciding.

Grahame,
 
The modern trend is only one color, but my choise out of these would be #3.

Graham, my wife and I vote for no. 3

We think it will look beautifull with a darkblue hull 👍

Ordering new spinnaker. Votes requested on color scheme.

Some possibilities. The boat is dark blue. Red and white are the colors of the Canadian flag:

Furler in place for test fit. It spins very freely. Still waiting for rigger to splice endless furling line.


The Harken torque rope has a stainless steel outer layer which makes it VERY resistant to twist.

I am ordering an asymm for it. That is what it is intended for. I chose Harken on the advice of the sailmaker. I do plan to try the symmmetric spinnaker on it but I have my doubts.

Hi Graham,

Is the Reflex 2 furler oke for a symetrical spi? I use a asym. spi and I am looking for a furlersystem. So if this one is oké for a symetrical it should be perfect for a asymetrical.

Have fun.

Frank
