The Furlerboom Kicker
There are 3 sizes of Furlerboom kickers, each with a number of springs available. For a perfect functioning Furlerboom the kicker must be able to lift the boom into furling angle. Also the kicker must be able to be compressed in length by the main sheet when sailing close hauled. To meet the requirement of stroke and reliability we make our kickers with 1,5 m. stainless steel springs. A 2:1 purchase in Dyneema is included with the kicker ready for the additional purchase. The Furlerboom kicker is ordered separately. Also custom made kickers with gas spring is available. We are also able to make the Furlerboom to fit any other brand of kicker with gas spring return force, including hydraulic kickers.
