Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Jib forestay / Mouse Assembly

The Amel furler and forestay configuration is a bit unusual, and most riggers have never seen one. In our case when the forestay was dry, we got a metal to metal screeching sound when we furled. We rebuilt the entire system last summer, coated the fore stay with super lube synthetic grease, and it is now smooth and quiet. The superlube is a nice product, as it is clear and less messy than conventional waterproof grease.
Good luck with the furler rebuild.
