Schaefer's many years of experience have cultivated a durable, low friction furling system that offers ease of use and simple maintenance.
With the ﾓFree-Furling in system the sail furls and unfurls on its own luff wire and is easily removed for use on trailerable boats or for light air staysails and Gennakers on larger boats. The lightweight upper and lower swivels included in this kit utilize clear anodized, marine grade aluminum and contain hi-load Amoco Torlonﾙ bearings to ensure smooth and reliable performance. Precision computer machined races maximize bearing contact area for ultimate strength and durability under load providing you with safe, easy furling. The aluminum drum is lightweight and compact and features an open design that allows for easy maintenance and servicing.
Free-Furling Systems resist corrosion and can be easily flushed with fresh water to maintain its integrity for years of use.
