Re: [Amel] loose furling knob on mizzen


I'm glad you asked that, Mark.  I've been taping mine with electrical tape which didn't last long, then most recently with a couple layers of duct tape covered with electrical tape which is lasting a little longer.  I'll be interested to hear what others have done.

The black donut mizzen furling knob that wraps the socket for the winch handle is loose. I always have to push it back in before/after furling/unfurling my mizzen. Not a major problem but annoying nonetheless.

I asked the Amel guys in Guadeloupe to fix this, which I think they tried by using glue of some sort. But it came loose after a couple of weeks.

Has anyone else has this problem? Is there a good fix?

Thanks in advance,
