Earlier on in my passage from Madeira I had a problem with the Genoa furler. It turned out to be the motor. I switched it for the staysail one which is like new, so I could carry on my voyage.
Now I need to decide how to proceed. The defective motor is shorting on its windings and I can see a strand that is actually broken.
The question is:
To send to rewind shop for repair
Or to buy new?
Or to buy one from another Amel owner who has upgraded to newer better furlers and who has the old ones?
