Small Boat Furling
Small Boat Furlers
Harken Small Boat furling systems allow the trailerable cruising or dinghy sailor to set and furl the jib from the cockpit. Drums and halyard swivels feature multiple stacked races of Delrin® or Torlon® bearings for smooth rotation under load. Small Boat units are for furling only, not reefing.
Hoistable Halyard Swivels
An optional hoistable ball bearing halyard swivel can be installed on the headstay so the sail can be raised or lowered without removing the headstay. Swivels are independent of the headstay, which allows the luff to be tensioned separately from the mast rake. Hoistable swivels work along with your standard Harken Small Boat furler.
The high-load Small Boat furler with hoistable halyard is available as a kit.
