Ok here first is an explanation.
In thi model, the traveler is adjusted by hand. Swivel block and jam cleated. That's the most used main trim on my boat I wanted it to be easy. I'm thinking 8:1.
What about the vang? Also 8:1?
Main sheet is also a jam cleat on the traveler itself.
I'm not getting a chute till next year, so the starboard side will have some free real estate. But when I do, I'm gonna need a winch for the down haul on the pole right?
The concept of lead blocks is from Gui. http://www.sailnet.com/forums/307912-post.html
What sort of mechanical advantage would I need to have for a hand trimmed main sheet? I'm thinking 8:1.
Will sheeting in the main by hand above the companionway really be a pain? (I rarely single hand but it will happen....) - I don't want to move the traveler, but I don't think I want to trim my main by winch either...
I'll have a load more detailed questions about brands, line sizes etc. later. Right now I'd like to get a first pass at the 10,000 foot view...
Where would I mount preventers?
Some things were just easier on a 24' boat!
What am I forgetting? I'm sure I'm about to have a head slapper...
