Harken Fittings

Reading Time: < 1 minute

As it becomes necessary to replace blocks and other deck gear, we are replacing them with Harken equipment whenever possible. We have never had a failure to date, and they stand behind their products: When the bearings on our 16-year-old Harken jib roller furler system needed replacing, Harken found the parts and did it for a reasonable price, making it as good as new. Most companies would have told us to buy a new one. They have done a couple of small customization jobs for us cheerfully and efficiently. A great company!

I bought a well used and much travelled boat with mostly Harken gear. It is now “almost entirely Harken gear”, right down to the bosun’s chair. Their willingness to take trouble to help with even small items is impressive.
