replacing Mk3 furler with carbo foil

Post by tc171 » Tue Mar 10, 2020 1:19 pm

Hi,

I plan on replacing the forestay on my boat but since the furler is Mk3, it is proving hard to find the right parts and avoid replacing the furler.

Hence, I am considering the Carbo foil option. Is this allowed in class rules?

Thank you,

The J boat specification is: Harken split-drum Unit 1.0 standard headsail furling system. Over the production run 2001 to 2012 this came as mk3 & mk4, both with the aluminum profile, the carbo option is not Class Legal.
