D40P - genoa sheet inhauler

Post by Coyote2.0 » Wed Dec 05, 2018 6:02 pm


I'm new on this forum ... because I'm a happy new owner of a D40P. I take advantage of the season to think about improvements ...

On our sailboat, there are two "genoa sheet inhaulers", composed of a simple inox ring through which the sheet passes, connected by a vectan rope to the mast foot (cf. photo). Unfortunately, this lacks adjustment.

I'm thinking of replacing the ring with a low friction ring. But does anyone have any idea how to make an adjustable system (preferably from the cockpit), knowing that all the clamps on the deckhouse are used ?

Thank you in advance for your advice !
