The time between when I purchased the CDI Flexible Furler and installed it was about 8 weeks. Delivered in a large pizza size box, the plastic flexible luff required effort to straighten it out before installing. I first tied it to the boat trailer for 48 hours and then bent it back on itself for 12 hours to get the furler luff straight enough to install on the forestay. Check out the factory installation guide.
I installed the CDI Furler single handed with the mast raised.
Having now sailed for four months with the CDI Flexible Furler rig – I’d recommend it to anyone with a Catalina 22. It’s simple to install, furls without effort and is easily reefed.
