Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] roller furling rivets


Hello James,
I have had the same problem several times and finally the foil holes were worn enough to warrant further action so I removed all the rivits and used the gib halyard to lift the foil out of the fixture and cut off about 1/2 inch from the bottom being careful not to damage the forestay. Then drilled new holes in the foil for new rivits and that has worked well. But you need a large rivit gun to handle the large rivits.

Good luck, Bill Rahmig Leonore of Sark SM72

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] roller furling rivets

We own a Super Maramu #207 and have a problem with the roller furling
rivets on the jib. There are ten of them and 7 have sheared off with
3 in a state of disrepair. Have any of you have any expience with
them. We can't seem to find any documentation with the notebooks that
came with the boat. Any help would be most appreciated.
