the leads at 12' back (probably the max beam) could be used for a barber hauler for the spinnaker sheets.

Re: WTH are these things?

Guys - it's a Windrose 22 - think cheapest possible solution to a minimum sailing configuration.

I doubt there has EVER been one with a spinnaker barber hauler setup.

Econo small boats frequently have bulldog fairleads for sheet leads where a more substantial boat would have track & blocks.

My first 20' was set up exactly that way.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Jib sheet block, and Genoa sheet block.

"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.

Re: WTH are these things?

someone might be onto something with sheet leads, judging by this pic:

Although it strikes me as a damn goofy set up, with some horrible sheeting angles,

Re: WTH are these things?

I think they are for double line furling control lines. You would have a continuous loop necessitating 2 lines being fed back to the cockpit. I might have the name wrong but not the function.

Re: WTH are these things?

I have close to the same set up on my 26 ft "cheap" sailboat. I use the forward ones when I have my storm jib up and the aft ones when my genoa is being used. They seem to have been placed in the best spot possible for use with the 2 sails and seem to work very well. Keep in mind I'm not racing and have nothing to prove. Just like to get out on the water and sail. Bigger and more precise boats have a track so the point can be adjusted depending on what sail is being used.
