Manual for a Harken MKI furler, 80's vintage
« on: December 05, 2019, 03:32:07 PM »
Howdy Folks,

I am rebuilding my mast rigging this winter on my Aloha 34.  Does anyone have a Manual for a Harken MKI furler, 80's vintage, that could be scanned and emailed or posted to the forum?

only 23 weeks until launch day!

Thank you,

Craig

I don't have that furling, but I am replacing my forestay with the help of Mack Sails here in Florida. After dropping the furling gear from the mast it seems they grind off the upper swage fitting and then pull the new forestay through the furling from top to bottom. A new sta-lok fitting is added at the bottom and they are done.
In other words they didn't have to take apart the furling drum.
