Wow, quick feedback. Thanks, guys!

Alex,

Could you dig up the Harken (I assume that's what they are) part numbers for those 1st two solutions you showed? Or at least the sizes you're recommending (from which I could probably find part numbers myself)? Thanks! (Yeah, I'd really like to impress my lady, but I can't quite justify $600 for the Lewmar solution .)

Edit: Okay. Got it on the part numbers. Thanks!

Sailormann,

We were wondering the same thing. This man was not shy of spending good money for good equipment. Note the Harken traveller. He also upgraded the two jib sheet winches from the original, rather small Lewmars to Harken #40's. He didn't scrimp on anything, basically. So... I dunno. I'm guessing what's on there now are the originals.

Valiente,

A thicker sheet? Recommendation? (Obviously I'd need bigger sheaves to accomodate a thicker sheet.)

Thanks, guys, for your help.

Jim
