Plastimo Jib Reefing Furler System 609

Plastimo Jib Reefing Features

Plastimo Headsail Reefing Systems represent excellent value for money for the cruising yachtsman

The reefing drum features highly resistant stainless steel and Delrin ball bearings. The Halyard swivel has Torlon and Delrin ball bearings that improve overall performance and increase mechanical strength.

  • Max. size of the bow sail - 25m squared
  • Drum Capacity -  13 m.  6 mm

The 609 cheeks of the drum rotate 360 degrees, which ensures safe maneuvers through a soft and regular feeding of the rope of the rod. These cheeks protect the reefing drum efficiently and the discreet round design, combined with embedded screws, allows the free running of the ropes.

 

For boats of 6 - 9 m.

  • Designed for yachts from 4 metres up to 11 metres length overall
  • Excellent value for money
  • Simple Design
  • Straightforward installation and dismantling
  • Virtually Maintenance Free
  • Unique Patented Design means - no unstepping of the mast and no modification of the forestay

Advantages

Plastimo Jib Furling is available with a single (S-series) luff grooves to cater for cruisers or twin (T-series) luff grooves for cruiser/racers.
The S series is ideal for the cruiser who simply requires the furling facility for easy reefing.
The T series is useful for the cruiser/racer because the double groove allows for more efficient sail changes - If the drum is bypassed and halyard swivel disregarded, a second sail can be rigged before taking down the existing one.
Select S Series for a single headsail ~ T Series allows for more efficient sail changes

 
Choosing Between the Chainplates or Turnbuckle Model Versions

 

All Plastimo headsail reefing systems include a set of chainplates in the box

On the 'chainplates mounting' version, the chainplates are fastened to the forestay U-bolt and the forestay itself is secured to the chainplates.

On the 'turnbuckle mounting' version, the chainplates are pulled apart and a funnel is engineered inside the spar, to run the turnbuckle through.

This version allows the adjustment of the forestay tension even when the headsail reefing is set up, which is not possible with the chainplates-only mounting version

 

Tips and Tricks

Chainplates or turnbuckle 
Most sailing boats are equipped with chainplates to fasten the forestay to the stem fitting. Chainplates come with several holes which facilitates the adjustment of the standing rigging. The use of chainplates also allows to position the tack point as low as possible.

The turnbuckle version allows for more accurate rigging adjustments. However, the tack point will have to be positioned slightly higher depending on the turnbuckle size.
