Alado Roller Furling & Reefing since 1992
Start by placing the Top Sheave with external halyard line and two interlocking clamshell foils (5 ' & 2.5') on a clean forestay.
Simply add each foil and until the Top Sheave is just touching the mast.
Remove forestay at deck place through drum and re-secure forestay.
Because the system is supported by the bearing free Drum and Foils that rotate on the shoulder of the deck connection and around the stay wire... a Jib Halyard is only needed during installation to assist lifting.
Tension the sail by using opposing forces on the external halyard between the Drum and Top Sheave by securing on the Drum.
No parts to lubricate, wash or maintain or worry about. Our exclusive Press Fit Drum stands the test of years of reliable use around the world.
Salt spray is easily washed away by every nature's rainfall.
Since the Outer Drum is secured horizontally, there is no risk of twisting the deck fitting.
We designed the Alado foils with Double Luff Feeds so you can make fast sail changes or optionally use two sails for controlled downwind sailing and eliminate the need for special head sails and/or using the main sail and head sails.
Or just keep the spare luff feed for a backup...the choice is yours.
