I have a 1985 Beneteau Idylle 34.5 which I use for harbour sailing and short coastal runs around Sydney. I haven''t altered the layout of lines
led back to the cockpit in the two years that I have owned the boat but
am thinking about reorganising things now that I know the boat better, and as a result of other changes made. The following is how things are laid out at present, (working from port to starboard).
Port coachouse: genoa halyard (furling genoa), spinnaker
halyard, mainsheet (traveller is forward of the companionway).
Starboard coachouse: main halyard, lazy jacks
At the mast I have; main topping lift, jiffy reef 1&2, outhaul and vang.
I''m thinking that the genoa halyard doesn''t need to come aft (because of the furler
) and that the spinnaker
topping lift is redundant (because of the assymetric). I would like to have the reefing lines
back, but I think that will involve changing the reefing system to single line
Before I start, I would appreciate hearing from others on what works best for them.
Thanks in advance, and a happy festive season to all.
