The GFM range (Genoa Furling - Manual) is Bamar’s genoa reefing furler, with aluminium foil sections. The range is available in different sizes C0, C0T, C1, C2, C3, C4 and C5, for wire diameters from 7 – 16mm (rod #10 - #40).
By having a drum and halyard swivel rotating on a double ball bearing race, Bamar ensures a very smooth furl with no lubrication or maintenance required. The drum, entirely made in anodized aluminium alloy, has a central hollow section to accommodate an internal turnbuckle. The complete setup has been designed to be easily fitted using simple tools.
The C2 model is designed to take 12,14 or 16mm diameter chain plate pins. The drum comes with long link plates which can be cut to length to customize tack height. The connection between two foils sections is made using an aluminium splice piece that is inserted inside the foils to ensure a perfect alignment.
The C2 standard furler set includes: Bamar GFM Drum kit C2, Basic foil kit BMG 40R and 9 additional BMG 40R foil sections.
(N.B The number of foil sections has been calculated to make up a standard 16,5m stay, additional foil sections can be bought separately)
The standard C2 drum kit includes: the furling drum assembly, link plates and HR shackles.
The basic C2 Foil kit BMG 40R includes: splice pieces, a halyard swivel and 3m BMG 40R furling foils. Allen screw and liquid sealant are supplied to lock splice pieces tightly.
