Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Maramu mainsail furling issues
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
the genoa furler that has been installed for 16 years on the Santorin/SM is not available anymore. Jacob is lucky to have one on his Maramu!!
Does your genoa furler show problems? With a careful maintenance, it should last many more years.
What you have on your Maramu #220 as a main-sail furler is probably very close to the mainsail furler system of a Santorin, or to what Jacob has got on MA # 202 (see his pictures), except that the winch handle's nozzle for manual furling is probably at the front of the mast (not aft). If so, you should just try and maintain the system as it is, replacing the bronze gears and bearings of the gaer box when needed, and servicing the motors.

My Maramu is hull #220. Is it possible to upgrade the Amel furling systems on my boat to those that were used on the Santorin/Super Maramu?
