Mk1 Harken furler foil or small part thereof

Postby mm5aho » Wed Nov 04, 2015 9:35 pm

I need a new lower section of the foil on my Harken Mk1 furler. This aluminium extrusion is the part below the entry bracket for the sail bead, and is about 750mm long, so I'm looking for perhaps a metre of this extrusion to fashion a replacement. Mine is worn at the point where it is driven by the drum. In the Mk1 the drum drives direct onto the foil, with a small clamp, but can tend to wear the foil where it enters the drum. I need to remove about 25mm, so be better to replace that bit.
Anyone got a scrap foil, or part of one?

Perhaps a pic of the cross section of the extrusion would help. I've got a dod of Bamar foil in stock just in case there's an incident.
