ROLLER FURLING, CDI MAST, BARE EXTRUSION, 3" X 4" X 28' ROLLER FURLING, CDI, LUFF ONLY
ROLLER FURLING, CDI
Our Price: $913.00

This is the complete roller furling system for all MacGregor models. You will also need the deck hardware to lead the control line to the cockpit and a headstay compatible with the furler. We can provide you with both. Your headstay must have a standard turnbuckle at the bottom and a swaged threaded stud on the bottom end, not a loop. The luff is not returnable.

You also may be interested in the ball bearing upgrade for the furling drum. This is a replacement metal ball bearing. ALthough it's not a night and day" difference between the standard bearing and the ball bearing it is a nice upgrade and truly the only way to get maximum performance and ease of use out of the CDI flexible furler system.

Fits V24, V224, V25, M25, M26C, M26X. Does not have sail feed slot cut or any holes for hardware drilled. Must be shipped motor freight, call for quote, disregard quoted shipping on website. Masts are shipped in 2 pieces with a heavy duty splice / reinforcement at the spreaders. Mast packaging fee: $150

Select appropriate options if you'd like the mast drilled for hardware installation and/or notched for the sail feed slot.

We recommend buying a new mast foot plate with a new mast so we can drill the holes to match up correctly.

THIS LUFF FITS THE CDI UNIT ONLY. This is the plastic headfoil for the CDI, Cruising Design, roller furling units. This plastic luff is what the headsail rolls up onto, the headstay is inside. Has two groves, one on each side, for sail. Luff is not returnable.
In some cases the shipping charge may be higher than the estimate. We will contact you if this happens.
STAYS, FULL SET OF STANDING RIGGING, 26X BOOM, COMPLETE, 26C, 26X, 26M ROLLER FURLING, CDI, DRUM ASSEMBLY
STAYS, FULL SET OF STANDING RIGGING, 26X
List Price: $370.00
Our Price: $350.00
Savings: $20.00
This is a full set of factory spec rigging for the 26X, priced about $15 less if you buy it as a set. Includes standard 1/8" headstay and backstay and 5/32" upper and lower side shrouds with male stay adjusters swaged on. All of our rigging is high quality stainless wire and stainless swage fittings. You may also want to include female stay adjusters (linked here) if you are re-doing your rigging.

The "add" option refers to the upgraded forestay. The standard is 1/8" but the 5/32" upgrade is the same thickness as the side shrouds. We recommend using this if you usually keep the mast up on your boat.

Note that we use a generic picture for rigging so it may not be of the exact wires your boat will get, but we will make and send you the correct rigging!

The original boom extrusion is no longer available, this package uses the larger and stronger extrusion also used for the mast on all boats before 2003. We cannot assemble any hardware on the boom before shipping it, as it would not fit in the tube that we use for packaging. This is a complete boom assembly including all factory original hardware redesigned where needed to fit the new larger extrusion. Does not have any optional hardware such as single line reefing, boom vang bail, or custom outhaul. These kits are available seperately. Must be shipped motor freight, expect high shipping charges and a $30 special packaging fee.

Replacement plastic drum assembly for the CDI FF2 roller furling system. This does not come with the luff support pin, or the anchor pins/shackles that are pictured. All of those parts are available separately.

For more detailed information on the replacement parts see the CDI FF2 Manual by following this link. This part is CDI part #2010 or "B" in the diagram.
MAST RAISING SYSTEM, CURRENT WITH WINCH FOR ALL BUT 26M BOOM, BARE EXTRUSION, 10.5 FT BOOMKICKER, W/NEW BOOM FITTING

This is the newer winch style mast raising system for use on all MacGregor and Venture boats except the 26M. This system can be used if you don't have a mast raiser at all or if you want to update a block and tackle style system to the newer winch style.

Most boats will need some additional hardware, especially if you don't have any mast raiser at all now. Be sure to read the "Extended Information" section before you order! If the wrong parts are ordered from the drop-down options the customer will be responsible for return shipping charges and the shipping of the correct parts.

This system is very specific to the MacGregor Mast and MacGregor hardware and is not sold for or intended to be used on other brands of boats.



Fits all boats except V24 and V224 which had an 11' boom, we can offer this length. This will need to be cut to length for all models 17' thru 24'. Must be shipped motor freight, expect high shipping charges and a $30 special packaging fee. We are using the same section as the mast, this will require that you also replace your boom end caps with the new part, boom end cap large. Please call if you have questions

A really convenient piece on the 26X as well as older boats. Eliminates the need for a topping lift because it holds the boom up while raising, lowering, and reefing the sail. Does not include the block and tackle part of the boom vang. If you have no boom vang at all, order part # 3301-1V0 also. Will need to be removed (very easy) to raise the pop top on 26C and older pop top boats. THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY WITH ROTATING MASTS, DO NOT USE ON 26M. 3301-1v0
HALYARDS AFT KIT, 26X STAY, BACKSTAY TENSIONER KIT ROLLER FURLING, CDI, BALL BEARING UPGRADE
HALYARDS AFT KIT, 26X
Our Price: $189.00
This handy kit includes all of the hardware required to bring your main and headsail halyards back to the cockpit. This allows you to raise or lower your sails without going forward to the mast. Use one for your main halyard and the other one for your jib, spinnaker or jib sock halyard. Unlike many kits, we use rope clutches to secure the tension on the halyards to assure a safe and positive lock that is easily adjustable. The kit comes with stainless hardware and Spinlock PXR rope clutches.

The kit normally comes with two rope clutches, if you want to add the third one you must select it from the drop-down.

It is highly recommended to only use this kit if you have plastic sail slides. If you have a factory bolt rope and no slides you will probably want to add a downhaul to get the sail to drop like it should.

Backstay tensioner kit for 26X, 26C, M25 and all keel boats with 28' tall mast. Includes new backstay cable with loop at top and bottom, 4:1 blocks and line. Attaches to existing your female shroud adjuster at stern chainplate, if your female adjuster is missing, you should order that also, part #3102-110.

This is a replacement metal ball bearing for the FF2 furling unit. Although it's not a "night and day" difference between the standard bearing and the ball bearing, it is a nice upgrade and truly the only way to get maximum performance and ease of use out of the CDI flexible furler system.

If you're having trouble with rolling and unrolling your furling unit we suggest first looking at replacing the furler control line. Sometimes the line is too big (should be 3/16") or it's just old and that's why the furler is getting stuck. If your line is good but you're still wanting a system that rolls more easily, then the ball bearing upgrade is probably worth it.

For more detailed information on the replacement parts see the CDI FF2 Manual by following this link. This part is part "E" in the diagram.
BOOM VANG KIT, ALL BUT 26M BLOCK, MAINSHEET AIR SET ROLLER FURLING, CDI, NEW STYLE PLASTIC CUP
BOOM VANG KIT, ALL BUT 26M
Our Price: $159.00
BLOCK, MAINSHEET AIR SET
Our Price: $139.00

This kit gives you all the blocks, line and hardware to install a Boom Vang on any Mac except the 26M (use kit 3301-1M0). Does not work with early boats equipped with the roller reefing boom when the sail is actually reefed. Most boats already have the holes drilled in the mast and boom for the attachment bolts. If yours does not, you will have to drill two 1/4" holes.

This beautiful polished stainless ball bearing 4:1 block set can be used for the mainsheet or vang. Their low friction greatly reduces the load when sheeting in the mainsail and allows the boom to go out without help in light wind. A really nice upgrade both functionally and esthetically. The ball bearings surround a ring that appears as a hole so we call them air blocks.

New style plastic replacement cup for the CDI FF2 roller furling system, the Stainless cup is no longer available (new picture coming soon). This is the cup only, the main plastic bearing is a separate part.

For more detailed information on the replacement parts see the CDI FF2 Manual by following this link. This part is CDI part #1807 or "F" in the diagram.
SPREADER, FIXED BASE, RETROFIT KIT SINGLE LINE REEFING KIT ROLLER FURLING, CDI, HALYARD TOP FITTING
SINGLE LINE REEFING KIT
Our Price: $99.00

This is a great upgrade for any older boat with loose spreaders that can fold up against the mast. Greatly improves both the strength and stiffness of the rig, making it much easier to get good headstay tension. Improved headstay tension means improved upwind performance. Fits 3.5" X 4" teardrop style mast (1967 thru 2003). Most 26X models came with rigid spreaders standard, some early boats did not.

This kit modifies the boom so you can reef the sail from the cockpit. Your mainsail must have slides and jacklines, or slides and a mast gate cover to work properly. With just slides and no jacklines or mast gate cover, you will need to remove 1 or 2 slides from the mast to reef. Works great with your halyards led aft to the cockpit. An easy way to update your old roller boom to a more modern system.

FURLER CONTROL KIT
Our Price: $79.00

1x19-5/32 IN Stainless Steel wire. Fits all 26X with roller furling or hank on sails.

If you have the older style, simply unscrew the right hand thread t-bolt from the turnbuckle and thread the new headstay directly in.


This is an upgraded wire, the same thickness as the side shrouds. We recommend using this if you usually keep the mast up on your boat.

Kit for cleanly running your roller furling line back to the cockpit. Includes 45' 3/16" line, four fairleads (like the two shown), and a cam cleat to mount on top of the deck. Hardware will depend on which boat you have, please let us know the year of your boat. The CDI Roller Furling Kit does not include this. But, if you are adding roller furling to your boat to be able to control the furling from the cockpit is a must!

Used as the bottom of the mainsheet set on all boats since 1987 and the bottom of the boom vang on all boats. Has becket and cam cleat.
