Re: Mainsail furler - manual crank problem

Hi Duane,

I had this issue a couple of years ago. I replaced the manual gearbox .... at great expense from Amel !

The upper bearing on the main gearbox is a trap for salt water. I regularly wash it out with fresh water and spray lanolin grease on it to try to prevent the corrosion caused by the build up of salt water.
