As with the Karver KF Furling systems the Karver KSF Top Down Furler can be found outfitting boats from a 20 ft. cruiser to 150 ft. mega yachts.The KSF furler is lightweight, compact and offers a unique locking drum mechanism. This locking feature can be controlled from the cockpit and enables you to operate the system with only one hand. In addition to the safety advantages of a locking drum, it also prevents the risk of accidental unfurling and removes the need clutches on the furling line
Unlike the conventional roller reefing systems the same furler can be interchanged to use with your full inventory of Code sails, staysail or asymmetrical spinnakers. The lightweight and shock absorbent plastic cover encloses the spool and resists permanent deformation that may restrict or interfere with the system's ability to rotate. The plastic cover avoids potential scratches and tears that may occur with a metallic covers when the mechanism is taken off or stored with the sails and sheets.
KSF Furlers have a notch on the spool allowing fitting or removal of the loop line without removing the line cover or dismounting the system. This eliminates the need to remove the cover and avoids the risk of losing small parts (screws, pinsﾅ). It also keeps the mechanism closer to the deck by avoiding the necessary displacement required for removable covers and increases the available luff length by minimizing the height of the spool and tack fitting.
