Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Furling Gearbox Differences

Excellent to know!
I never replaced the one inside the mast so did now know about that, but makes sense.

One other difference is you'll have to grind
off the cooling fins on the Bonfiglioli if using it for the
mast furler (vs. outhaul) so it can fit inside the mast
opening (at least on the SN).Craig SN68

Here are the differences I found:

Sincerely, Alexandre

For those of you

who have more experiences with Amel's of different

vintages... are there fitting differences between

the Leroy Somer and Bonfiglioli gearboxes used on

the Mainmast furling system? 

Are they interchangeable? 

Interchangeable with modifications?  Or just too

to try?
