This rather neat jib tack fitting is aboard Charles’ Composite Craft Fifteen. You’d think it was carbon as it’s black… and it’s on that boat…. but actually it might not be carbon…. What caught my attention was the purpose built design, presenting exactly the right angle. I think it’s also engineered so that the furler can’t flop around and is always sitting just so. It’s not visibly bolted either – clever stuff… (double click the photo to enlarge it…)
Much better than on my boat I must admit….
