Re: Genoa Sheets Fouling on Mast-monted Winches

The sheets snag on the aft side of the winch..?

I'm wondering if you could make, or have made a guard that snaps or clamps on to the base of the winch, with a stainless bail that would protect the winch.

I'm picturing something like a round wire light guard ( below) , but much sleaker...for your purpose.

Zinc Plated Steel Snap-On Wire Guard for Glass Globes - 7-3/4" - Franklin - 253-1232 - Refrigeration Hardware - Components - ZESCO.com

You would just need a bail that hooked into the socket, like faster suggested, then snapped around the base of the winch.
