mizzen furler failure
Yesterday while unfurling the mizzen on my Super Maramu, the handle stopped turning the furler extrusion and it seemed to pop out a bit. Removing the black plastic bushing around where the winch handle attaches resulted in the entire "barrel" sliding out (photo of this piece is attached). I haven't figured out why it came apart nor how to put it back together. I'm hoping someone can offer some ideas:

I don't really know what the answer is, but we had problems with that black ring rotating and becoming loose until I used 5200 to stick it to the housing.
It's possible that the black ring is what holds it all together i.e.keeps the shaft in place.
Olivier would know for sure.....Olivier ?
