Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Roller Furling Questions

Unfortunately, I'm not back to the boat for another week, but I do have spare rivets and the specs on the boat. I'm fairly certain you can find the rivet size on one of the forum threads. I had to drill mine out when I rebuilt my furler, and then put new ones in. They are fairly large aluminum rivets, and you will need a big rivet gun with lots of leverage to get them in. According to Olivier, they are aluminum, and intended to shear under an extreme load instead of damaging the gearbox. Keep spares, as they do occasionally shear. I bought a whole box from fastenal.
