Bill, did you see the pictures of my gearbox of the main . After we spend the winter in Marina di Ragusa and did not use the mainfurler for months we could not get the furler to work. The bearing of the gearbox was rusty and blocked - after using heavy force it moved, but the bearing was broken.Later I opend the bottom of the gearbox and brought it to a machine shop, were I put in a new sealed bearing by SKF. Now it works good.
