Eric et al,
I am in the process of servicing/regreasing our outhaul gear box after 3
years since the last service (by taking it apart) and, to my relief, I found
the gears and grease in good condition and a tiny bit of water inside. With
the furler and outhaul gear boxes as tightly sealed as they are to keep out
water, do you think there will be enough air/grease relief to allow the
introduction of new grease through the grease port? Any chance of damaging a
seal from the pressure of pumping in grease if there is no pressure relief?

of grease ports to it.

posted on this site somewhere? If not, when you have a chance could you post
Have you serviced your jib furler? My boat is now 11 years old and having
spent most of its life in the Caribbean and the fact that the jib furler
seems to really get a work out, I am considering doing "preventive
