Wire Halyard Winches
Yes I know they are crap so I don't need to be told that but the new Womboat has them for the main and genoa halyards. They will be thrown away and replaced but to do that I have to fit a new wire/rope halyard, fabricate and install winch pads on the mast and buy and instal new winches. This is simply not at the top of the to do list.
Thing is the genoa winch slips. No matter how tight you do up the brake it will not hold and I have to re tension the genoa every ten minutes or so. Anyone have any idea as to what is going wrong and is it possible to fix until we get the new winches installed.
