More like stone age. Might be a plan Simon although Raven has self tailing halyard winches and I must say I quite like them. Also, we are contemplating putting larger self tailers for the sheets onto Erringhi and if we do then we'll put the old sheet winches onto the mast. Doubt anything will have happened by the time you get back so let's keep it in mind.
Hartley, not a bad idea actually. Have to give that a whirl. thanks.
