free but for the effort of coming and hauling it away.

the toggle to toggle length is 33ft 8in
the forestay is 3/16"
the length of the max luff the headsail can have is 30ft 6in
a couple other dimensions are on the sketch



see old link here for other pictures

I just wanted to see the "transport ready in truck" photo again.

Nice option for someone experiencing issues with their own furler.

Lots of luck doing that with a Furlex furler - extrusions are aluminum - I bent the foil before I had even stepped the mast.

I think you can roll the foil into about a 5' roll. When mine was shipped it came with directions to unroll it . Here is the link for the CDI manual.
I bet you can reroll it to haul it and then straighten it out.
You can shorten the forestay and cut the foil down also. The 4 is too big for a 235. It could be put on something larger.
