I recently bought a boat equipped with Lewmar
46 primary winches
. Although the jib
sheets do not seem too badly worn, I am getting a lot of slippage from the self-tailers on the winches
, one significantly worse than the other. My sailing buddies say I need larger diameter jib
sheets, but I also understand that these Lewmar
''s have spring-loaded tailers. Before I start tearing into the winch
, can anyone advies if I need new sheets -- or just a rehab of the spring-loaded tailers?
