Where Credit is Due June 2012 Issue

Where Credit is Due: June 2012


When I purchased my boat in 2003, I upgraded to a Seldèn roller furling main and jib Furlex 300S. Since my boat is designed as a fractional rig, a forestay attachment installed within the mast was required. This year, a recall on the forestay attachment (part no 517-914) was initiated. (See the May 2012 issue’s “Product Updates” for more information on the recall.) Seldèn Mast’s Tom Sharkey forwarded the warranty kit to my local Seldèn representative, and they replaced the part with a new forestay attachment. The work required two men for at least four hours of work.

Seldèn (www.seldenmast.com) needs to be complimented on their commitment to customer safety and company reputation. Even though I race and cruise my boat, the original part was in excellent condition without any indication of impending failure, however it was replaced.

I strongly recommend the company and their products.
