Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] In Boom Furling Systems

John, Inboom furling is the best way to go on a re-fit. It will give you more sail area,more roach,better shape,and a much better performing boat. It is expensive,you will need a new boom and you will have to fabricate a tract for your slides over the existing slot in your old mast. Inboom furling is the wave of the future. In case of any failure all you do is raise and lower the sail same as we used to do. You can also place full length battens in the sail. Amel will eventually install it on their boats, the price will go up, but so will the performance. Also remember that in a blow you want to bring the center of effort down low when you reef, inboom furling realy does this.

Does anyone have any experience with retrofitting with an in-boom
furling system?

We have an Amel Mango with a single spreader mast and are considering
furling options.
