Hobie has finally answered your call and made the Sail Furler kit for your Hobie Kayak Sail kit. 2014 and newer kayak sail kits are now coming with a full-length bag which allows storage with the sail furled on the mast.
This kit can be added to any Mirage kayak sail no matter when it was made it will work on any Hobie Kayak Sail Kit. Very simple to install and easy to use.
A furler sheave is clamped to the mast at its base. Line in a loop, with two control balls, is routed outboard and aft to the seat position. You can furl or un-furl in either direction from the seated position. Simply reach forward and pull one ball towards you to un-furl. Reach forward and pull the other ball towards you to furl again. Simple and clean “sea-saw” action and no loose line ends to deal with. The furler control lines can easily be removed from the kayak for storage.
