I mostly sail out of edmonds, will be at shilshoal for the styc fall/winter ragatta in Oct. Boat will probably sail in FWB, I'll be on RC as PRO.

Sorry everyone for the small hijack...

Yeah, doesn't seem like there's a clutch made that will hold a main or jib halyard well over time. Have this problem on our boat and another boat I sail on regularly. On the other boat, we're thinking about using two clutches in line on the jib halyard. Maybe we'll see you out at the styc fall race day!
