Good point on the reefing line. I was planning on using the standard cockpit winches with clutches on the cabin top. I had a 23' Ensign with that arrangement and didn't have any trouble with using the cockpit winches, but if you think it would be difficult to get the tension I'll rethink it. I may go ahead and try it without and add the winches later if it becomes unbearable. I won't be able to report on progess until spring though.
