Re: [Amel] Gennaker furling

Hi ,

We originally flew our gennaker from the eye on the anchor roller but it
bent under the load.

I had a beautiful bow sprit made that sticks out about 24 inches from the
bow. It works wonderfully.

Has anyone installed a gennaker or asymmetric spinnaker furler, like those
from Facnor, on a Super Maramu? Any tips or photos would be appreciated. I
am wondering if I need a sprit to make this work.
