In reality sailhog (and Joel), my mizzen's self-tending when tacking, but it's another sail to trim whenever gybing.

i would like to know why that one fella in the picture is shielding himself as though the devil was standing before him. The other fella doen't seem to have any problem gawking. Maybe that was Missionary on his way to tie-land (no comment)

It's because the fella hiding his face from the photographer is married - didn't want his wife to see his mug bearing gifts to a stripper on the front page of the NY Times.

That makes perfect sense...a co-worker just pointed that out. Looks like he was "picking up some groceries" and made a pitstop. Must have told the wife that the lines at the checkout were ridiculas.

Hello,

Lewmar still makes parts for most of their winches. When I bought my 1986 Newport 28, it came with the 30ST, and the strippers were broken. After having the line jam a few times I bought the replacement part. It takes about 10 minutes to install, and then you never need to worry about it again.

My O'day had Barient winches. They have a metal stripper that won't break. But you can only get parts from Australia!
