Furling Main Outhaul Thingie

Aug 21, 2019
Catalina 315 Grosse Pointe Park, MI
Furling main expertise needed:

On my furling main outhaul line, near the outhaul block, there is a grey rubber sort of item. Does anyone know what it is called? Is it installed correctly? What is its function? I notice that it is lacking on many boats and even the Selden manual does not show it. I appreciate any help on this.

Thank you!

You are welcome. Mine cracked and had to replace it this year and of course you have to pay special attention to how the outhail is rigged there when replacing it so the donut is in the correct position. Best to take a photo.
