I think this is it from the online catalog.. won't be on the boat for a few days yet.

forget which model I used for the mainsheet. I'm sure it' s only 4 to 1.

TDW I should tune the rig but she's not uncontrollable in a gust. I'm just cautious of my steering cable. A couple of times I did hold her on course but she was heeled awaaaaaaay over fun but pointless imho. I've seen racers that have Catalina 30s break cables in less wind. lately with the better sails I got from Bacon (used) she literally seems like a new boat to me! and handles like a sailboat instead of a slug
