BUTLER automatic self-locking fairlead, was first presented at Amsterdam METS Marine Equipment Trade Show, the leading international exhibition for equipment, materials, systems and services for the marine market.
This novel idea has aroused an outstanding interest amongst marine operators.
Architects and designers were quite interested in it, especially captains and owners being the direct end-users who more often than nor are involved in sailing with a shorthanded crew.
Hostess too, often assisting captains and sailors, have warmly welcomed the new idea behind this fairlead by understanding the great help offered by a BUTLER fairlead in terms of speed and safe mooring requiring a modest effort from the crew.
A visitor described the BUTLER as: “the ultimate piece of commodity for sail women emancipation after the washing machine.”
The riggers at the exhibition stand gave the many visitors attracted by the novelty authoritative advice and information on how to mount and use a BUTLER.
