Leading Control Lines Aft
I'm planning my next project - leading the halyards, boom vang and reefing lines aft to the cockpit on my 1977 Ericson 32.
Is there any reason why I cannot, or should not, remove the winches from the mast and place them on the cabin top to be used for the aft-led lines?
If I do remove them, will it weaken the mast? Should I replace them with screws or something?
