Flying sail furlers are commonly used for Code 0, asymmetric spinnakers etc…Choosing the correct size for your boat can be a little tricky at time, so we wrote this brief guide for you to not forget anything along the way.
1. Get your measurements right
In order to choose the correct size furler, you will need to provide your sailmaker or rigger with some basic measurements:
Boat length: the overall length of the boat
Sail area: ask your sailmaker for an approximate area in square meters.
Boat type: is it a monohull or multihull? The loads will vary.
Sail type: is it a Code 0, reaching sail or an asymmetrical? It is not a critical parameter, however it can be helpful when borderline between two sizes.
Displacement: an approximate displacement of the boat…again, it is not critical but very helpful in between two sizes.
