Re: [Amel] SM Headsail furler maintainance

Hi Eric,

Thanks alot for the info. I took the main metal cover that is roped to the pulpit off today and all looked fine in there. Any chance you could send pics of your grease nipple locations. I note that at the bottom of the foil there are several pop rivets, but also 3 screws that are moved using allen keys. These wouldnt by any chance be greasing pionts?
