My apologies for dragging up an old thread, but I thought that I should add this info for the benefit of future searches.
Back on the 15 January I sent the following email to Bamar
I wish to obtain costs for some of your Manual Foresail Reefing and Furling Systems.
My forestay is approx 9.5M x 5mm, so it would appear that 3 of your models are suitable.
Costs required for
Model CO with 6 middle foils
Model COT with 6 middle foils
Model C1 with 6 middle foils
Delivery would be to Glasgow, Scotland.
Would I order from you direct, or do I need to deal with a local agent?
On 9 February, I received the following reply
Thank you for your recent enquiry concerning a manual foresail reefing and furling system to suit your Albin Vega. The attached quotation covers costs for all 3 systems requested including their furling lines and an additional special pin which holds the link plates of the furling unit either side of the toggle on your forestay. Bamar Furling systems are extremely well engineered and have been around for quite some years unchanged. The distinctive thing about the Bamar Furler is that the boats present forestay, complete with its turnbuckle is able to remain within this system, and therefore the turnbuckle itself or the system bearings are not under increased furling load. Albin Vega specifications suggest that the most suitable system for your yacht will be the COT model for a stay up to 10.5meters. Based on approximate calculations the CO system is generally for yachts up to 26feet and model C1 for 29 to 35foot yachts. The foil sections are made from anodised aluminium and have an oval, aero dynamic profile which offers the term high performance. Each extrusion is interlinked together with an aluminium splice piece and a Delrin plastic insert which bears on the forestay. The system is simple to cut and comes complete with its own installation Manual.
