I have inmast so I do not have a sail in the way. There are no spare sheaves to be had since the outhaul sheave is always in use, even when the sail is furled and there are no reefing sheaves, but I could put a (very) substantial block on the eye that is on the mast to lead the line to one of the winches on the mast. I imagine that I would not have a spinnaker up in those conditions so those winches are available.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
