so this is what I need help on:
my main sheet scenario! we took off some damaged hardware on each side of the traveler, it seems this is what Im missing for my mainsheet to go back to the winches Im guessing starboard side under the dodger since I have 3 winches there and 2 on port
this is my "new" main sheet aka washed in the machine with salvadorean downy! I also whipped the ends...the difference in pliabilty and ease of handling is impressive...I recomend this to any one with old rope on their boats btw
see this little sheave, its mounted on this custom wood block...Im trying to guess the angles here but IM ASSUMING it leads back under the dodger to one of the winches
my question is is this only one side...(the blocks of wood are on both side, but they were pretty damaged...
how would you guys run the mainsheet? this is beleive it or not my first mid boom sheeting system! jajaja
this is the hardware I have upfront...the eye should be for the vang as well as 2 sets of sheaves on each side that allow for it to be adjusted under the dodger...
however Im assuming also the po led all lines aft, so they might be simply for the halyards
Im not going thata route I like my halyards at the mast, I also whipped them new again...
any and all help appreciated!
