This week our controller for the Main Sail Furler stopped
working in one direction only (ie unfurling). I am not
yet sure if this is a joy stick controller unit problem
(eg water getting in or contact points corrosion) or a
problem at the furler motor at the mast?
Unfortunately this problem follows my poor decision to
have the boat detailed while we were not present watching
and hence we now worry that the workers cleaning/polishing
the boat could have got water into the cockpit controller points???
We will check this as soon as we are on the boat again on
(this week-end) however were just wondering in advance if
others had had similar problems in the past and if there
is a already a topic covering such a problem on our site.
