Fulmar headsail foil

Post by Bertgear »

Mate of mine has damaged his foil while dropping the mast on his Fulmar this morning, also having difficulty undoing the Rotastay drum.
Anyone got any used spares or has an old unit if they have changed there's, as you now parts no longer available

Try a sailmaker/rigger/yard to see if they have any kicking around after replacing old ones for customers. Our local sailmaker had a couple which they had cannibalised for spares.

I know in my heart that if it had happened to me I would always try to repair rather than replace. Has he thought of claiming on his insurance. He may get a fair payout and then he might be able to buy a new complete foil.

Hi
May be a bit late for you but I have 2 rotostay furlers + bits. One old which was replaced by new "Rotostay Regatta" . three days after fitting Rotostay Regatta my mast came down ( No fault of rotostay , Stem head fitting failure ) I replaced with Furlex so have the 2 rotostays surplus to requirements.
I am based just South of Dublin.
