    Default Colnebrook roller reefing foils (and other spare parts)

    Hi. I'm looking for Colnebrook (Seareef?) roller reefing spare parts, particularly a replacement 3m foil. If anyone has anything, please contact me! Many thanks!

    Hello, I have a roller foresail system but I do not know its manufacturer. I am in mid Essex
    What is the size of your foil a) front to back and b) side to side?
    I think the total length is about 7m. best wishes

    Thanks very much for your reply and offer. Our gear does very clearly show the name Colnebrook on the drum. The head very closely fits the foils (we had trouble passing it between sections at one stage, but have since sorted this) and so I think any replace foil would need to have an exact matching profile in all respects. We're therefore reluctant to replace the current lower section (which has a very slight bend in it) with anything other than another Colnebrook section. Thanks again anyway.

    Thanks very much for your message which has proved very interesting as it's shown that our Colnebrook is clearly not the Seareef model after all! Our drum has Colnebrook written on it, but nothing else. I hope that you get a good sale - it all tends to happen in the dying seconds in my experience!

    Hi. I understood that my system was probably a Colnebrook. I asked about the foil sizes so that I could see if the section was the same as yours.
    My foil sizes are a) front to back 31.8 mm and b) side to side 15.2 mm.

    Thanks for your further reply. I will measure my foil when next at the boat again next week.

    Probably a good idea to take some photos of the furling drum, swivel and foil section profiles? Then post here again?

    Our furling gear has now been reassembled and so we will have to live with the current foil for the foreseeable. Thanks very much for the replies anyway.

    Timing is everything! I've just damaged mine and will be replacing it. The foil is a round section - I understand that earlier sections were eliptical.

    Any good?
