Profurl NCI-42 Classic Furler System - 3/8" Headstay 52ft
The Profurl NCI-42 Classic Furler system is Profurl’s original manual reefing furler with a 52 ft 3/8” headstay luff extrusion and internal turnbuckle cylinder designed to be tough and maintenance-free.
All of the components for the drum have been selected to increase durability and lower friction. The drum is made with UV resistant, high impact plastic with a smooth surface to prevent lines from jamming and chafing. The open drum design prevents jams and gives access to the furling line in case of an override. The stainless steel drum cage prevents the furling line from jumping off the drum and allows for the furling line to be led in any direction off of the furler.
The NCI series includes an internal turnbuckle cylinder integrated with the drum at the base of the forestay. This allows the furler to be installed over an existing turnbuckle.
The C6 carbon steel ball bearings in the drum and top swivel are permanently sealed and packed in waterproof grease. The unique double lip seal system prevents water and impurities such as dust from entering the hydraulically sealed ball bearing copmartments, making the system totally maintenance free.
The lightweight and strong luff extrusion wraps around your forestay, shaped to increase aerodynamic performance on each tack while reducing luff tension and preventing twists. The asymmetric luff grooves make for easy hoisting and prevents jams. Longitudinal ribbing in the luff extrusion relieves friction. A removable clip-in sail feeder allows the top swivel to be removed.
A wrapstop is fixed to the top of the stay to prevent the halyard from wrapping and reduce line chafing. An adjustable halyard tang enables you to customize the height of the swivel.
Installation is fairly simple, in most cases fitted over your current forestay. The included long linkplate can be cut down and drilled to customize the height of the drum off the deck. Additional lengths of extrusion and clevis pins are available; give APS a call if you need different sizing.
Proful offers the industry leading warranty on their classic furler systems, which are built for the cruising sailor looking for durability and dependability.
