seabum is on a distinguished road
We have a PS 37 and had a Strong track installed last summer. It works fabulously. However, when I singlehand, hauling up the main from the cockpit, under the dodger, is still challenging for me (I'm female - not an excuse, just a fact!). I can get the main up very easily jumping the halyard at the mast, but then I have the problem of getting back to the cockpit to pull it through before the main falls down. I'm thinking of installing a clam cleat at the mast into which I could temporarily jam the halyard till I can get back to the cockpit to haul in the halyard. Hauling it in would then pull the halyard out of the clam cleat once all the slack has been taken out.
I'll let you know how it works when I get it installed!
