      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Profurl.. single luff grove

Recommended Posts



I have a profurl unit on the front of my Jeanneau 44 so.

Its got a single luff grove which really really sucks.

I think its what is a called a Classic unit. can you convert this to a double luff groove or is it best to just start over?

I had a Profurl Classic with a double groove.


I installed it myself and the foil came in sections which were joined together with inserts and grub screws. In seven years cruising the only issue was a tendancy of the grub screws to come loose on long passages. Cured by using Loctite.


See these guys for info if the double foil is still available.
