Furler support for trailering

Published date: January 20, 2010
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I made this simple support for the furler from scrap steel. It mounts off the bolts (slightly longer ones required) that go through the bottom of the mast and the mast/pulpit rail fitting used when trailering. It also prevents the mast from trying to rotate from side to side. It can be fitted or removed in seconds.
