burn one down

They haven’t been around for long, but top-down furlers may have the potential to do more for racing than regular furlers ever did, and Karver’s new small-boat top-down furler brings this grand prix technology down to even 4KSB level. Furling a jib is sweet, but furling a real downwind spinnaker in 3 seconds? Heaven!

You can check it out on a Class 40, but we think the more pertinent product video for most racers is this one of a J/105 with a new Karver KSF2 unit. Check it out, and hit up our pals at Euromarine Trading to get sorted. And tell ‘em we sent ya! There’s also a good furler thread here.

Title thanks, of course, to Ben Harper.
