Re: Singlehanding a PSC37???

I have the Strong Track on my Pacific Seacraft 37. It was a fabulous improvement. However, I still find it tiring to bring in all the halyard from the cockpit (being an older female might have something to do with that). I go forward and lean on the granny pulpit and jump the halyard. I cleat it in the cam cleat that I installed on the lower part of the mast. Then I can go back to the cockpit and bring in the slack. The last pull yanks the halyard out of the cleat and I can winch up the main for the last 6 inches. It makes singlehanding a breeze.

And I have the single line reef system with blocks at each reef tack and reef clew point.

I really enjoy singlehanding and these improvements have helped tremendously.
