Re: Amel 54 Furlers

I also have the same Reckman/Genoa and Bamar mej1.02/staysail setup on my 54, and have to say the Reckman is top notch.
This was done by the previous owner who invested in quality, throughout.
The staysail furler would be swapped out for the Reckman if ever it fails, or I find one on a wrecked boat being scrapped. But for now I’m happy.

Just to chime in on this discussion, on my A54, I replaced the original MEJ1.02 on the genoa with a Reckman while in Martinique a couple of years ago. Expensive - yes indeed, but absolutely bulletproof. The original Bamar would not handle high loads and eventually locked up from internal corrosion - even though I had it serviced the year before.
